Centennial College is hosting its first ever Toronto Student Film Festival called -- [Frame] -- that will celebrate up-and-coming student filmmakers.
This will be an opportunity for students across Toronto, a busy film centre known as Hollywood North, to showcase their work to an audience of other filmmakers and professionals in the industry.
The festival is pleased to announce that film critic Peter Howell; Barbara Evans, associate professor at York University's department of film and video; and George Filtsos, award-winning independent filmmaker, will judge the entrants.
"The [Frame] organizers deserve a pat on the back for taking the initiative to launch this festival, which will give exposure to young filmmakers whose work might otherwise not be screened," Filtsos said. "I wish something like this had existed when I studied film. It's absolutely refreshing. I'm honoured to be a part of it and hope that it marks the beginning of a long tradition."
The festival, organized by Centennial's corporate communications students, will feature 12 films that have been pre-selected from a variety of entries submitted by students from Centennial College, Seneca College of Applied Arts & Technology, Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, York University and Ryerson University.
"It's an event for students by students," Nichola Petts, one of the organizing students said. "We want to demonstrate the real creativity of our student filmmakers and perhaps inspire creative initiatives at colleges across the province."
The film festival will take place tomorrow from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m at Centennial College's Progress Campus at 941 Progress Ave. (at Markham Rd.).
Tickets cost $5 and can be reserved online at: members.rogers.com/frame or by phone: 416-289-5000 ext. 6991.
A limited number of tickets will be available at the door for $7.
Net proceeds from the event will be donated to the Toronto International Film Festival Group.
Barber-Collins Security Services Ltd. has a long-standing interest in Conestoga College's law enforcement programs.
This year, the Waterloo-based company presented two $500 scholarships to two Conestoga students: Elliott Brown of Elmira and Tammy McClure of Guelph. At a recent presentation, each received a cheque and a personalized, engraved briefcase.
The Barber-Collins Security Services Ltd. Scholarship will be presented annually to a second-year law and security administration (LASA) student who meets specific criteria.
First, the recipient must have completed the first year of the program with an academic average of at least 80%. Second, the winner must be enrolled in the second year of the LASA program.
Third, the recipient must have submitted a letter, supported by a resume, indicating interest in and suitability for a career in the security industry. Fourth, the winner must have a record of volunteer or community service while enrolled in the LASA program.
The two-year, diploma-level program prepares graduates for careers in private investigative work, security administration or a variety of other private law enforcement fields.
