Artists wanted
Painters, sculptors, woodworkers, sketchers and other artists - it's time to shine a light on your efforts at the biennial staff, student and faculty art show at the SFU art gallery.

To join in the fun, pick up an application at the art gallery (AQ3004) and submit your original art no later than Oct. 11. Please don't enter photos - there will be a separate photo show at a later date. For more information, contact Laura Moodie, ext. 4266 or email lemoodie@sfu.ca


Public forum on student residence
SFU facilities management is hosting a public forum Sept. 25 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the lower level of Shell House residence to get feedback on a proposed new student residence. In an effort to provide more on-campus accommodation for SFU's growing student population, facilities management wants to build 500 new undergraduate student dormitory rooms and a new dining hall. A new complex would be located north of Louis Riel house and south of the residence parking lot. Anyone from the on and off campus community, interested in reviewing the new plans and commenting on them, is urged to attend the upcoming forum. Facilities management hopes to obtain the SFU board of governors' and city of Burnaby's approval of its proposal by mid-October at the latest so it can break ground before the rainy season takes hold. For further information contact KC Jones, 604-291-3394 or kcjones@sfu.ca

Film festival contender
Films created by Simon Fraser University filmmakers are not only making a strong showing at this year's Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF), but are also strong contenders for festival awards. Keith Behrman's poignant portrait of love and loss, Flower and Garnet, will kick off the Canadian Images series of the 21st annual festival. The 1993 SFU film graduate's feature-length fiction is also one of five contenders for a $5,000 Telefilm Canada award for best emerging Western Canadian feature film director. A Vampire's Guide to Sweden, a short film created by 1996 SFU film grad Bart Simpson is one of 12 works up for a $4,000 Telefilm Canada award for best emerging Western Canadian director of a short or mid-length film.

Simpson's film, also in the Canadian Images program, is about a vengeful vampire girlfriend who forces her cheating vampire boyfriend to live in 24 hours of sunlight. Other SFU grads with films rounding out the 104 film Canadian Images program are Oliver Hockenhull, Bojan Bodruzic, Ann Marie Fleming and Joel Taylor. Two SFU undergrads (Jason Asbel and Brian Warsing) and grad student Toni-Lynn Fredrick also have term projects screening at the film festival, which runs Sept. 26 to Oct. 11.
