Laurier Film Studies Student Wins "Film Matters" Analysis Contest
We extend our hearty congratulations to Film Studies student Paul Tortolo, winner of the 2011 Vision Frame Analysis Contest hosted by Film Matters, an international journal of peer-reviewed undergraduate scholarship in film studies. Sponsored by distribution company Zeitgeist Films and academic publishing company Intellect Ltd., the contest invited students from around the world to submit a short analysis of a frame from the film Vision: From the Life of Hildegard von Bingen, directed by famed German director Margarethe von Trotta and released in 2009. In addition to earning the grand prize of $500 USD and a yearlong subscription to Film Matters, Tortolo will find his winning analysis featured in issue 3.2 of the journal due out later this year.
