Russian Student Filmmakers Festival 2009
This is a really big deal for us at Reelshow International.
It will be the first online Russian Film Student Festival and everyone involved is very excited about it. Our partner Academia Rossica is the Russian Cultural Foundation based in London.
The dead line for film entries is 1st August 2009 and the winners will be declared mid October 09. The best overall film prize will be an expenses paid one week trip to the Cannes Film Festival in 2010. 

International Work&Study Programmes 2009
We now have a few programmes for you to take a look at if you are interested in language study and internships abroad. For the moment, you have a choice of 3 locations in Canada  (Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto)  and 2 locations in France (Paris and Nice). 
Watch out for a great package in Italy coming very soon with programmes available in Rome, Milan and Florence.
If you are planning a work experience for the summer or as part of your post-graduate plans, keep in mind that you need a reasonable command of the language of the country you will be working in, so you need to start brushing up your language skills between now and then!   You also need to finalize your programme at least 3 months before your scheduled departure date.
The programme is available all year round, but remember, the summer months are very popular so you need to get your request in early.
If you are interested, drop us an email with a copy of your CV and your preferred dates, location and internship choice.  We can then send you a costing. If you are interested in a location that is not on our website yet, we can still help you! This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

We see ourselves very much as part of your journey to being a filmmaker. When the world comes out of this terrible recession we are going to emerge as the best and the biggest international film student and film school website - be part of it!
