About Us

The Filmmakers' Society is a student run organization that seeks to nurture and educate a community of student filmmakers by providing, networking, and managing personnel and equipment resources, allowing students to produce, exhibit, and critique their film projects at UVA.  Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.

Jackson Kosmacki


Hi, I'm Jackson Kosmacki, and I'm a fourth year Media Studies and Cognitive Science major. I've been making movies for most of my life. My primary focus is on screenwriting and directing, but I do a good amount of producing as well. I plan on pursuing a career in the film industry after graduation. I'm also interested in music, baseball, linguistics, and literature. Looking forward to a fun and productive year!
