Although the record label class, IDS 199, is held in the spring semester, the label functions year round and in conjunction with the LVC VALE Media Industries Conference in the fall semester.


This will be the first annual VALE Film Festival, which will be a part of the VALE Media Industries conference. The VALE Media Industries Conference is currently in its thirteenth year of running. The Conference is a place for students, creatives, and industry professionals to learn, network, and have fun.
