DEVELOPMENTS

DAEMA was founded in 2006 by Jason Hsiao & Jethro Rothe-Kushel.  DAEMA has since gained the strong support of the Film & Television Studies Department, the Theater Department, the Dartmouth Film Society, and the Alumni community at large. DAEMA has also become a leader among ivy league entertainment alumni groups.  Now with a international presence of over 1800 members, DAEMA continues growing strong creating dozens of exclusive screenings, performances, mixers, panels, and other events since its 2006 NY / LA launch. Ideas, comments, and/or feedback are always welcomed. Thanks for all your emails of support and enthusiasm.
