Application deadline for Sierra College Animation Festival is approaching

The deadline for entries to the Sierra College 2007 Scollies Animation and Video Festival is April 9.

Entries are invited from Sierra College students, anyone from the Sierra College community, and from high school students in the Sierra College district that encompasses Rocklin, Roseville, Grass Valley, and Truckee.

Winners will get six $300 scholarships, besides making professional contacts in the animation movie industry, and have their work presented to the community on a big screen at the festival. Entries will be screened by a panel of professionals in search of new and creative work in animation and video.

The festival will also feature a keynote presentation by Katie Hooten, co-producer of the animation movie “Hoodwinked” that opened nationwide in early 2006. Hooten’s husband, Tim, is a Sierra College alumnus.

The festival is scheduled for April 28, from 1 to 5 p.m. in the Dietrich Theater, at Sierra College Rocklin Campus located at 5000 Rocklin Road.

To submit one’s work to the contest, visit the Scollies Web site at Watch the Web site for continuing announcements, including the full festival schedule.
