CineVic presents Promoting Your Short Film Internationally with Sue Biely
NimBLE Company Director (Former Acquisitions Editor-ZeD)

As one of Canada’s leading buyers of short films, Sue Biely ran the Acquisitions department of the late night alternative arts CBC TV series ZeD. Responsible for screening over 7000 shorts, Sue combined solid management skills, cutting-edge licensing strategies for both digital and traditional platforms, and great taste to build an acclaimed inventory of 700+ short films from around the globe most notably having the acumen to secure the broadcast premiere of Academy Award winning short film Ryan before it actually received the award.

The goal is to help filmmakers figure out how to leverage their career strategies using short films. Sue will use examples in her presentation to aid the discussions of: what makes a strong short film, how are shorts a unique genre and how a short film can help your career. Sue will also talk about festivals, broadcast and distribution from a global perspective.

This workshop is appropriate for anyone who has made a short film or who is interested in making short films and getting into the global marketplace. Your registration fee guarantees your spot.

CALL FOR CREW AND ACTORS for SEPT 2nd

For anyone who is interested in acting or helping out on the
production of a short five to ten minute independent action
film here in Victoria BC Canada.

We would be filming very capable martial arts students from
Canada’s Best Karate involved in a confrontation at a local
restaurant. The purpose of the project is to put together a quick
exposure package, for both the local filmmakers who would
come out to crew, the actors and extras, and the local businesses
which would contribute some resources. By attempting this
mutually beneficial project, one of our aims would be to
demonstrate and encourage collaboration between local
business and filmmakers/artists.

We are looking for five to ten male or female extras, between
the ages of 15 to 35. We are looking for actors and extras, party
goes, waitresses, bartenders and so forth and; we also want to
meet more skilled individuals or simply those who would like
to improve their skill on camera, lighting, and other crew
positions, to come out for a day to act in an indoor pub scene
during the evening and/or late into the night, this upcoming Sunday
September 2nd (Labour Day weekend). For extras, please send two
headshots by e-mail. Or, if you know anyone else who may be
interested, please let them know.

We’ve met some great people from Medianet and Cinevic who’ve
come out to help on our other ongoing project, Task Force Two
movie (40 minute action thriller), and wish to meet and work with
more ambitious and dedicated talent. If you are interested, or simply
want more information, just contact Dorin by e-mail (dorin_cernat@
shaw.ca) or phone (5891599)!

ACTION, MORE ACTION, WELL.. MORE ACTION!!!!

Dorin Cernat / Director / (250) 589-1599 / dorin_cernat@shaw.ca
