The Lemieux Library's first student film contest wraps up soon!

Watch our kickoff movie at YouTube:

...and submit your own short film for a chance to win a $200 gift certificate to the SU bookstore or a FLIP Mino videocamera!

Your film can be simple or elaborate, fictional or cinéma vérité,, improvised or scripted, as short as 15 seconds or as long as four minutes... whatever your creative vision is -- as long as it highlights your memories, experiences or activities at Lemieux Library.

Upload your film to YouTube as a "response" to the library's kickoff movie by 11:59pm on Monday, May 11, 2009. Winners will be announced in early June.

Find full contest details, including info about videocameras that you can check out from the library, at
