Fifth PASO Student Film Fest on the Way

The Fifth Paso Student Film Festival, organized by the Bilkent University Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture, Gazi University İletisim Fakültesi, Başkent University İletisim Fakültesi, METU GISMA and Ankara University İletisim Fakültesi, invites university students to submit their creative films for showing.
The first Paso Film Fest, which took place five years ago, was the brainchild of Bilkent COMD students. They wanted to be able to show their film project and see others' projects as well. A student named Engin Kaya came up with the name, which refers to the identity card, or paso, that all students have. So, if you have a paso, that is also your pass to join in the festival as a filmmaker or a viewer.
This year's Paso Film Fest will include guest entries from Germany, Georgia and England. If you want to submit your project, the deadline is March 28. To be eligible, you must be a student, and your film should be no longer than half an hour and produced after 2003.
Coordinator Andreas Treske says there will be no single winner; rather, everyone who makes a movie and participates in the Paso Film Fest will be a winner. He has a hint for student filmmakers: in order to make a successful film, try to keep it simple--KIS.
The Paso Film Festival will be held April 19-23 at the German Cultural Center in Ankara. After the showing of the films, the audience will have the opportunity to participate in a discussion session about what they have seen. For more information, log on to www.pasofest.org

A Journey Through History
A group of student volunteers working on the Üniversite Personeline Destek Projesi (ÜPDP), a project that assists the children of Bilkent non-academic personnel, arranged a trip to the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations last Saturday, March 12. Despite unfavorable weather conditions, 9 volunteers and 30 children visited the museum in Ulus.

The project, which is a TDP-TOG Bilkent Group program, supports the children of non-academic personnel not only educationally but also socially, with activities being held every Saturday. Last Saturday's museum visit showed the children the accumulated history of the land they are living on, from the very early existence of mankind in Anatolia to the period of Turkish settlement.
While there, the students enriched their knowledge of Anatolian history by looking at artifacts produced by the various civilizations that inhabited Anatolia. Other purposes of the trip were to teach them how to behave in a museum, and to emphasize the importance of the world's cultural and historical heritage.
