A look back at SU Showcase 2011  

Deadline extended for SU Showcase sustainability video submissions

April 11, 2011

SU Showcase's organizers know that the creative process usually can't be rushed. That's why they've extended the sustainability video exhibition submission deadline to April 18.

All Syracuse University and SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry students are invited to submit their original sustainability-related videos for the exhibition, which will run during SU Showcase on May 2 in Schine Student Center. The videos should focus on one or both of the following 2011 SU Showcase themes:

    • The Anthropocene Era – A term for our current geological age in which humans affect every natural force on the planet; and
    • Visions for a Sustainable Future – How people can live to meet current needs while preserving the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Video submissions must be no more than five minutes in length and will only be accepted in QuickTime format on DVDs or flash memory. Filmmakers are eligible for funding to help with production costs and they will have the opportunity to personally present and discuss their works at SU Showcase. The videos also will be displayed around the SU campus and available for viewing on the SU Showcase website.

For more information, contact Roman Yavich at ryavich@syr.edu.

Students for Tomorrow's Environmental Policy (STEP) and Spark Contemporary Art Space are coordinating the SU Showcase sustainability video exhibition. All video exhibition entrants will be invited to an end-of-semester Sustainability Party co-hosted by STEP and Spark Contemporary Art Space.
