Student Film Competition

The Morrin Centre is announcing its Student Film Contest for March of 2015, made possible in part by the Department of Canadian Heritage.

We’re asking high school and CEGEP students to submit a 3- to 10-minute documentary film or news report they have created to the contest.
Of those submitted, we’ll choose a winner to earn a $500 prize, and a runner-up to earn a $250 prize. Winners will be named on the day of the colloquium, March 21.
– Entries will be accepted in French or English.
– The five best entries will be posted on the Morrin Centre website where the public will have a chance to vote.
– The winning entry will be announced at the event.
– The students involved in the creation of the five best entries will be invited to take part in one of the round-tables where they will discuss the making of their reports.
– During the round-table, Anglophone and Francophone students will discuss their perceptions of language and media and how it shaped their reports.
–  The session will be moderated by a prominent bilingual media personality, which will also help to encourage student participation. This will also allow students to express themselves in the official language of their choice.
