We invite you to consider taking the pledge: (cards and ribbons available in Woodburn 210)

"I pledge to explore and take into account the social and environmental consequences of any job I consider and will try to improve these aspects of any organizations for which I work."

Whether you take the pledge is voluntary. It allows people to determine for themselves what they consider to be environmentally and socially responsible.

Different universities have had different levels of official administrative and faculty participation in supporting the pledge and in having recognition of the pledge be an official part of the graduation ceremony. The website,, has many details and practical suggestions for implementing the pledge and finding work.

Students who are interested can pick up in Woodburn Hall 210 a wallet-sized pledge card to sign and a green ribbon to wear.

We have recognized that the pledge can be supported by anyone who wants to be intentional about the responsibility of his or her employment. It is our hope that your support of the pledge will contribute to the cooperative effort to build responsible citizenship for a sustainable world. The pledge is a serious commitment and pledge signers have taken actions such as turning down jobs they did not feel ethically comfortable with (and letting their potential employers know why) or promoting environmentally friendly efforts while on the job.

Your wearing of a ribbon will make a public statement of your intent to consider the well-being of the world and its inhabitants both when you consider job possibilities and after you are on the job.

Sincerely yours,

About the Festival

The Park City Film Music Festival (PCFMF 2008) is pleased to announce its fifth call for entries from filmmakers and film composers. The Park City Film Music Festival is a film festival competition for composers, directors, and producers.

The 5th ANNUAL PARK CITY FILM MUSIC FESTIVAL (PCFMF) will be held in Park City and Salt Lake City, Utah, January 17-27, 2008. This is one of the first film festivals in the world recognizing the contributions of composers and their music to film, and the first of such festivals in the Americas. Awards are given in the categories of Best Use of Music in a Feature Film, Best Use of Music in a Documentary Film, Best Use of Music in a Short Film, and Best Film on a Music Subject. The first major film festival to recognize film music as part of the awards lineup since 1985 is the Flanders International Film Festival - Ghent, which currently draws over 80,000 devotees.

Film music, whose broad appeal continues to gain prominence in the music marketplace, has stood for a long time recognized only at the very highest levels: the Academy awards, the Emmys, the Grammys, and a few others. The growing stature of film music is exemplified in the announcement in 2005 of the Pulitzer prizes qualifying film music for the first time after over 60 years.

The PCFMF burst on the scene with a landmark 33 films in 2004, 50 films in 2005, 102 films in 2006, 205 films in 2007, and is the brainchild of Ms. Leslie Harlow who has been operating the Park City International Music Festival for over 21 years. A Juilliard graduate, she and her husband, Russell Harlow, a member of the Utah Symphony, are both prominent classical artists.

Ms. Harlow is driven to propel the PARK CITY FILM MUSIC FESTIVAL to international prominence, and has received encouragement from the Utah Film Commission, original founder of the Utah/United States Film Festival (now called Sundance Film Festival). Leslie has already spoken with esteemed film composer, John Williams, who is very excited at the prospect of this new festival. As this festival grows in scope, we will be inviting John Williams and other prominent film composers to celebrate the art of film music through performance and master classes. For 2008, we are currently choosing the seminars and masterclasses we will be offering.

The 2005 Park City Film Music Festival masterclass was presented by film composer and educator Mark Northam of the Film Music Institute (LA).

The 2006 Park City Film Music Festival masterclass was presented by world-renowned composer, orchestrator, and arranger Conrad Pope (Pavilion of Women, Munich, Memoirs of a Geisha, Star Wars Episodes I,II, III), and seminars and a panel were conducted by Emmy award-winning composer Kurt Bestor (2002 Winter Olympics), award-winning film composer Vincent Gillioz, award-winning film composer Jeffrey Gold, award-winning sound designer and sound editor Jim LeBrecht of Berkeley Sound Artists, and Music Supervisor and writer for Film Music Magazine, Michael Rogers.

The 2007 Park City Film Music Festival masterclass was presented by Emmy award-winning film composer Hummie Mann, and seminars were presented by award-winning film composer Vincent Gillioz, award-winning film composer Jeffrey Gold, award-winning composer/guitarist/author Vince Lauria, award-winning film composer Dennis Dreith, singer/songwriter/author Gilli Moon, and music supervisor/member of Live, Chad Gracey.

Present and past sponsors of the festival include Summit County Recreation, Arts, and Parks Tax Fund, Summit County Transient Room Tax Fund, Park City Chamber of Commerce, Klipsch Audio Technologies, Mackie, Michael Wiese Productions, Performance Audio, Filmacre, Corpus Polymedia,, Cambridge Films, Berkeley Sound Artists, Disc Makers, Film Music Institute, Film Music Magazine, Film Score Monthly, Park City Stock Photography, Westminster College, Utah Contemporary Theatre, Pure Volume, Knock on Wood Film Productions, Rico Brand, Sunnybay, Inc., and the Utah Wind Power Campaign.

Most interns enjoy the atmosphere, share an excitement about independent and experimental film, and welcome the opportunity to be surrounded by it.

Canyon distributes filmmakers’ personal prints as well as preserved prints from institutions around the country, and take an active role in care-taking for the collection and ensuring its long-term viability. Currently we are working on testing all acetate-base films for vinegar syndrome, as well as creating a plan for our our paper archive, a documentation of 45 years of experimental and avant-garde film history.

Canyon Cinema Cooperative is a San Francisco-based organization of filmmakers from all over the world, dedicated to the support, promotion, distribution, and preservation of motion picture film as an art form. It was founded in 1967 as a grassroots organization to educate the public about an emerging independent American film culture. Canyon began with forty films by twenty-five members who were committed to the necessity and possibility of film artists having an active role in the exhibition, distribution and promotion of their own work.

In the forty-five years of its operation, Canyon Cinema has become one of the world's leading distributors of experimental and independent film. At present, we have 330 members worldwide and distribute more than 3,600 films and videotapes. Despite Canyon's dramatic increase in scale, we remain a democratic, artist-run organization committed to the principles upon which Canyon Cinema was founded.

The inventory of Super 8mm, 16mm, and 35mm films distributed through Canyon Cinema traces the history of the experimental and avant-garde filmmaking movement from the 1930's to the present. Through the distribution of work by young as well as established filmmakers, Canyon Cinema remains a vital force in the future of film culture.

Dec. 7 City Lights/Underground Double Feature

Hello all, please come out this Friday night for a truly inspired double feature: Star Trek and avant-garde work by Hollis Frampton.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture directed by Robert Wise (US 1979) Continuing the adventures of the Starship Enterprise, the first feature length film of the franchise sees the crew searching out the mysterious Vger in hopes of saving Earth from certain doom. A visible upgrade from its television predecessor, this film features amazing special effects that, although nearly thirty years old, remain stunning. (132 minutes)

Hollis Frampton was one of the major filmmakers of the so-called "structural film" movement of the late '60s and early '70s. His work takes up not only the problem of the nature of cinema, but also deals with philosophy, memory, knowledge, and a host of other concerns. Tonight we'll be presenting two of his best-known films, nostalgia and Critical Mass. Of Critical Mass (1971, 25m), Stan Brakhage has said "It is war!" nostalgia (1973, 36m) is a labyrinthine exploration of the relations between image, sound, and memory, an infinite regress through photography and narration.

The underground and City Lights film series are sponsored by Indiana University's Department of Communication and Culture. All screenings are on Fridays at 7 p.m. in room 251 of the Radio-TV building on the IU campus. All screenings are free and open to the public, and free parking is ample in the lot adjacent to the building, provided you clearly display an underground/City Lights flyer on the dashboard of your vehicle.

Opportunities at IDS Weekend for CMCL Students

Opportunities for CMCL students at IDS Weekend

Hello Communication and Culture students!

I'm Peter Chen, and I've been selected as Reviews Editor for the Indiana Daily Student's WEEKEND magazine in Spring 2008. I'm looking for film, music and TV reviewers, and I figured CMCL was a great place to look. I'd especially like to broaden our scope of movies and music beyond the typical "college" genres. For music, I'm looking for reviewers with background in country, metal, bluegrass, classical, jazz, world and local music, and in film, I'm looking for reviewers willing to review Ryder movies, City Lights offerings, classic films now on DVD, etc. However, this is not a must. After all, a good reviewer is a good reviewer.

The application is below. They are due FRIDAY, JANUARY 11, after we get back from break, but I'd appreciate it if you could get back to me before then. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have. My e-mail is Thanks!

Peter Chen
Office: 812-855-0760

Spring 2008
WEEKEND Reviewer Application


Positions held on staff (past IDS experience not required):

Other journalism or writing experience (past journalism experience not required):

Other jobs, activities:

Answer the following questions on a separate sheet. Double-spaced, 12-point font would be helpful. Please respond carefully and thoughtfully. Be complete and concise, and limit your answer to two to three pages.

1. What makes a good review?

2. What kinds of music/movies/TV programs/DVDs would you write reviews about?

3. What news sources do you follow? Where do you get your ideas?

4. What influences guide your writing style? What writers do you admire?

5. I would like the Reviews section to have a wider spectrum of genres, especially in music. Would you be willing to write reviews for country, jazz, classical, bluegrass, world or local music?

6. As a reviewer, you will have to write outside your comfort zone and be a critic, not a fan. Could you do that? How would you honestly review period drama if you preferred action-comedy? Would you review jazz if you preferred death metal?

7. Make a list of albums/movies/TV programs with one in each grade range (A, B, C, D, F). (an example for movies: Die Hard – A, Die Hard 3 – B, Die Hard 4 – C, Die Hard 2 – D, The Whole Ten Yards – F)
