Since 2012, the Alternative Television and Film Club (Alt TV) has existed as a space for those interested in developing as television and film producers. The club welcomes aspiring writers, directors, actors, and musicians at any skill level to become a part of this organization. Several past members have gone on to work in the television, film, and video industries.

At the end of every semester, the club sequences the videos into a single quality episode of television and they screen off-campus at a well-attended event. Students, faculty, staff, community members, and everyone are welcome to attend the free screening.
