SOUTHWEST ALTERNATE MEDIA PROJECT

Houston’s premier creative resource for filmmakers and film lovers since 1977

WHO ARE WE

SWAMP is a Texas-based media arts organization committed to the film and video art of this region, the artists producing independent images, and to the cultivation of an engaged audience. It is vital to the intellectual and cultural development of any community to have the ability and resources to create its own artistic vision. In order to cultivate a climate for media representation of this region, SWAMP supports the tradition of artists who express their visions through film and new media. SWAMP encourages development of audiences who seek out artistic voices that reflect, celebrate, and examine the cultural, social, and political diversity of their localities.

UPCOMING EVENTS

SUPPORT SWAMP

The Southwest Alternate Media Project, Inc. (SWAMP) was founded in 1977 with the vision that executive level volunteers, student volunteers, youth volunteers, film enthusiast volunteers ALL VOLUNTEERS would be the engine that made the “Project” work.  Dominique de Menil was the founding promoter of this media project, in collaboration with James Blue who believed that media would one day be the voice for the voiceless.  Today we continue with that same vision, and we depend on believers and activists like you to contribute to our work.  Yes, the Southwest Alternate Media Project is run by volunteers like you.
