Illini Film & Video back on Jan. 23

The Illini Film & Video club at the University of Illinois will resume meetings for the 2013-14 academic year later tonight, Thursday, January 23, 8 p.m., in Room 111 of Gregory Hall, 810 S. Wright St., Urbana. These meetings not only allow interested members of the student body to learn about and get involved in film-making projects, fund-raising events, and volunteer or paid job opportunities outside of IFV, but they provide direct access to the “who’s who” behind the group far better than their otherwise useful Web site, YouTube channel, and Facebook page.

In the e-mail blasts leading up to this week, a new challenge has been presented! In the spirit of the Champaign-Urbana Film Society’s Pens to Lens Screenwriting Competition, students may submit original film scripts no longer than 10 pages to the IFV board via e-mail by this Saturday, January 25; from the pool, two or three finalists will be chosen and produced as group projects by the club. One should also watch for announcements about outreach activities, including IFV’s annual involvement with Roger Ebert’s Film Festival, for they’ll come fast and furious as the spring semester continues!
