The Idaho Statesman is reporting that the Boise State University Student Programs Board is putting on its first short film festival called The MacLife Film Festival. The event is being sponsored by a local Mac retailer called MacLife. The event is designed to spotlight the works of Boise State University students interested in creating short films, and will feature short projects. Though being made on a Mac doesnit seem to be a requirement, the name "MacLife" in the festivalis name may well mean than many Mac-created works will be submitted. From the Idaho Statesman:
Audience votes will determine the winners. The first- and second-place winners will receive either a digital camera or a used iMac computer.
The festival will be held at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, at the Boise State Special Events Center. Tickets are US$1 for general admission and free for students.
Anyone interested in submitting a film to the MacLife Film Festival should contact Ben Davidson with the Student Programs Board at 426-3835. Films should be approximately 5-20 minutes long. Entries of all types of films are encouraged.
Some of the goals of MacLife and Student Programs Board in presenting this festival are to inspire young filmmakers and give them an opportunity to display their work publicly. They also want to promote excellence in young filmmakers and give them the desire to cultivate their talents.
