The Southwest Alternate Media Project (SWAMP) promotes the creation and appreciation of film, video, and new media as art forms of a multicultural community.

A Message From Executive Director, Mary Lampe MaryLAtSWAMPBsml

“Many of you often tell me how much you value SWAMP’s programs-our on-going professional development workshops, the annual Business of Film Conference, the summer digital film camps for teens.  There are those of you who have kindly volunteered your assistance and generously become annual members. We are very grateful for your many expressions of support.

“Just as we do our very best to assist you on a continuing basis, I now am asking you to consider helping SWAMP in a similar way.   Recently, we have begun a new PARTNERS program that strengthens our work: help filmmakers make movies in our multicultural community.  For a reasonable amount each month ($15, $25, or $50) for one year, you can become a PARTNER.  It’s easy to sign up and your monthly tax-exempt contribution will be charged to your credit card. It’s painless. Just fill out the credit card permission form and email it to me at mmlampe@swamp.org, or fax it to 713-522-0953.


Rick Ferguson, Executive Director of the Houston Film Commission and Marian Luntz, Curator of Film and Video at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

“I’d like to thank all of our current partners, in particular Marian Luntz, Ed Hugetz, Celia Lightfoot, Dr. Chris Souders who were the first to initiate this monthly giving program to strengthen Houston’s filmmaking community and culture.

“At a SPECIAL EVENT, March 18th, Board President Adán Medrano gave special recognition and gratitude to Marian Luntz who for many years served on the Board Of Directors and now as a member of the Board Of Advisors, continues to support SWAMP’s mission.

“I ask you to become a SWAMP Partner.  Partners can support SWAMP monthly at the level that fits your budget:
$15 per month — Associate Partner
$25 per month — Partner
$50 per month — Senior Partner

“If you are able to help in this way, I look forward to hearing from you. My email is:  mmlampe@swamp.org

Thank you very much.
Mary Lampe
Executive Director
