Due November 1st, 2018 - Highlight what makes the Ancient World so exciting and interesting. The Department of Classics and Religious Studies are looking for innovative and engaging films by Canadian high school students that explore a classical object or topic.

Select an object or a topic on which to focus, and consider how best to present it. Remember that film is a visual medium, so it has to look interesting as well as sound interesting. Even 4 minutes can seem like hours if your video doesn’t have some visual interest and variety in it! The video may be in English or French.

It’s your choice as to what topic you choose for your film, so long as it’s something drawn from the Graeco-Roman world. Possible subjects might be ‘Why did the Persians invade Greece?’ or ‘A day at the racetrack in ancient Rome’. Or you can deal with a work of literature, like a play by Euripides or a poem by Ovid. Alternatively, you could focus on a work of ancient art, such as a vase, a coin or a statue.

How you present it is also up to you: you could go for a traditional mini-documentary style, or for something more artistic – the choice is yours. Not every member of the team needs to appear in front of the camera; you may wish to spread the tasks of writing, recording and presenting your ideas. The film may also include other individuals, as long as they agree to take part.

Entries should be 4-minutes or less in length.
