Film and media job fair on today at UVic
The Reel Careers in Film and Media job fair gets underway today at the University of Victoria, with two Victoria-raised filmmaking veterans among the dozens of panellists who are conducting free workshops.

Panel discussions and seminars will be offered free of charge from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Michele Pujol Room and the Upper Lounge boardroom in the university’s Student Union Building.
Dozens of disciplines will be topics of discussion. The career fair includes the Short Cuts screening program at Cinecenta.
