The final issue of OPENWIDE volume 12 is on stands now in NCB and the UCC! We’re going out with a bang this year with tons of great articles, student spotlights, poetry, and more. Between those two beautiful covers you’ll find a heartfelt letter from your outgoing FIMSSC executives Jordan Coop and Kelly Mark and an interview with the incoming crew, Jordan Pearson and Steven Wright. You’ll get the low-down on why bar photography as a form of free creative labour sucks, why we need a little of that “FSU” spirit back, Access Copyright, Girl Talk, and way more.
Pick up your physical copy today or read it after the jump:
Interviews will be held on April 17th and 18th. You will be contacted with your interview time on April 16th.
We are looking for a dedicated team to continue to expand the reach and impact of OPENWIDE for the upcoming year. Interested in pushing the avant-garde and keeping the FIMS and UWO community creatively informed and connected? Then go forth, and apply today.
You may apply for a max 3 of the following positions: Managing, Print, Creative, Online
Words waft spectre-like among us: they are spoken and embodied; they are revoked and undone piece-by-piece, evaporating into the thin night air. I wonder, maddeningly, whether I had simply dreamed them up. Continue reading →
It’s that time again, the time when FIMS celebrates Western University’s talented filmmakers in an annual film festival. This year the FIMS Film Fest is part of Reverie, a week-long arts showcase at Western. Reverie runs from March 4th-8th, and the film festival will be on March 6th from 2pm-6pm in the McKellar Room.
Submissions are now open. To participate, you must be a Western student, and your film must not be longer than 10 minutes.
The December issue of the newly renamed OPENWIDE is now on stands. It’s all about change and the many ways we experience it. From music, to alternative anti-capitalist lifestyles, discussions on the USC’s power, “vampire capitalism,” #HurricaneSandy, and more.
Expect to find critical and engaging stories, poetry, and photography in what is possibly our best issue yet!
But don’t take our word for it. Get your own from stands in NCB or UCC, or read it digitally:
The December issue of Volume 12 of the (soon to be re-named) mitZine is in the works and we would like to feature your work. “Changes” is the theme of this issue, and we are looking for submissions that incorporate it in a creative way.
So grab your camera and show us what you’ve got! The submission deadline is November 20.
The rumours are true: the October issue is Selling Out. But you can get it for free on stands in NCB and the UCC now!
This issue, titled Selling Out: Your Education and the Bottom Line, digs into the commercialization of education, from Western’s recent re-branding campaign to the residence construction boom, and what it means for us.
