Film Festival makes haste to announce 2004 theme: SPEED
The 17th annual Virginia Film Festival will pick up the pace Oct. 28-31 with the theme of “Speed.” Among the featured genres will be the road movie and action film, with a special emphasis on the history of one of cinema’s primary devices: the chase.
Critic Roger Ebert will return to conduct his shot-by-shot film class, and panels will examine the increased pace of movie editing in contemporary Hollywood film. In a special program, director Jeff Wadlow, a Charlottesville native, will oversee a filmmaking workshop in which approximately 20 filmmakers will write, shoot and edit their films in three days, to be screened on closing night. The festival also will present films by international directors who have recently voiced their opposition to the rapid pace of film and responded with what one critic calls “a cinema of slowness, of contemplation.”

Step into someone else’s shoes
Those of the University community who might be described as “temporar-
ily able-bodied” will have the chance to experience a disability, such as simulating blindness or moving around in a wheelchair, at the Disability Awareness Fair, scheduled for March 16 in the Newcomb Hall Commonwealth Room from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The event, also geared toward people with disabilities, those who assist them, or anyone who knows a person with a disability, will highlight a variety of services in the University and local community, from Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic to the U.Va./HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital.
Sponsored by Student Council and the Learning Needs and Evaluation Center, the fair was supposed to have been held during Disability Awareness Week in January, but some events were postponed due to weather.
