ECU's Scott Hillier announces the line up of films in competition

Exhausted. Mental images of hundreds of films spiraling through tired minds. Eyes a-sting. Tremendously excited about the event to come.

First of all I have to say a big congratulations to the 78 filmmakers who have made their way into ÉCU’s 2011 ‘Official Selection’. It was a hard, hard process this year – we were inundated with amazing films – and for those filmmakers that didn’t get in – please keep on going, the world needs great story tellers.

Thanks also goes to my selection committee judges – 40 of you scattered around the planet from Serbia to Moscow, from London to Greece and yes, even in France – you’ve given your time and I’ve mentally exhausted you and left you with mental images of hundreds of films spiraling through your tired minds. Sorry :)

Now, let’s talk about ÉCU 2011 the event! I’m excited to be at two new locations this year, Les 7 Parnassiens is renowned for its projection of independent films and will serve as the perfect place for ÉCU 2011’s major projections and also host our Production Hub (more about this exciting addition in our next newsletter – but dust off your camera festival attendees!).

The artistic space at Les 7 Parnassiens is sure to be felt inside the movie theatre and out. It will no doubt become a very special place for some of our filmmakers who will be celebrating their world-wide cinematic debut. We’ll also be having screenings at the wonderful Cinema Christine which is located down in the cobbled streets of Saint-Germain. As well as host many of our professional workshops where attendees will hear from professionals about screenwriting, directing, editing and animation. It’s going to be a PACKED weekend so I suggest that you start depositing into your sleep banks right away!

My fabulously enthusiastic, creative and talented staff will be announcing a heap of new and funky advances over the coming weeks including ÉCU’s social networking site, ÉCU association membership and much more that should make your mouth water. Keep up to date on our website!
