Want a New Car? 

Mainstream mashups!

Cool: David Bowie has just launched a new mashup contest. There's a new ad campaign for Audi cars that features two of Bowie's songs mashed up. They've decided to throw a mashup contest to capitalize on this, awarding a new car to the best song that uses samples from his new album and any older Bowie song. Voting on entries starts this weekend and the contest ends next month so get your turntables cranking.

Student Shorts 2004 submission reminder! 

This was to be forwarded to the New Media Students:

My name is Iain Robinson, co-director of the 4th annual Student Shorts Film Festival. Student Shorts is a national forum exclusively for Canadian part and full time post secondary students to show off their hard work on a big screen, make some industry connections and possibly sell films! The festival offers a friendly and positive environment to young filmmakers from across our nation, a chance to win some incredible industry awards and have their films juried by the people such as Bruce McDonald.

Basic Guidelines:

- To submit your work you must be enrolled full or part time at a Canadian post secondary institution.

- Submitted work must be no longer than 30 mins, and can be shown on miniDV, DVD or 16mm (optical or silent)

- Send your submission form and VHS preview tape by June 1st. For more information and to download a submission form or fill out an electronic one, visit and follow the Student Shorts 2003 link

- There is a $15 registration fee to help cover our costs. This fee must be paid by either money order or certified cheque.

- The festival will take place on September 24 and 25th at Toronto’s prestigious Jackman hall at the Art Gallery of Ontario. (Cinematheque)

- Other events, like last year's successful panel discussions, are currently in the works and should be scheduled at the National Film Board shortly.

- The after party and awards ceremony was an incredible success last year and we have something even bigger lined up this year with more sponsors than ever!

- Keep checking the website for more information – it serves as THE resource for the festival. (

Last year we had over 180 submissions from coast to coast and are hoping to receive even more this year. Student Shorts is now in it's 4th wicked year, I invite you to check out our website for all submission information, as well to get a chance to see what the festival is all about.

Be a part of the fastest growing and coolest film festival in Canada, and help show the world the power of student film!
