Sierra College sets video festival

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

Sierra College students, anyone from the Sierra College community, and high school students in the Sierra College district encompassing Rocklin, Roseville, Grass Valley, and Truckee may enter.

Applicants will have the opportunity to win six $300 scholarships, in addition to making professional contacts in the animation movie industry, and to have their work presented to the community on a big screen.

A panel of professionals will screen the entries in search of new and creative work in animation and video. Accepted entries will be screened at the festival.

Katie Hooten, co-producer of the animated film “Hoodwinked,” will deliver a keynote presentation. Hooten’s husband, Tim, is a Sierra College alumnus.

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

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