Apologies as always for the necessity of cross-posting...


To those involved in film about the human cultural heritage:

*Your time is running out!  Only one month remains* to submit entries for
the 2010 edition of *The Archaeology Channel* International Film and Video
Festival.  This is the only international competition for this genre in the
entire Western Hemisphere and a wonderful showcase for your work.  Our
deadline for receipt of entries is October 15, 2009.  TAC Festival 2010
takes place May 18-22, 2010, in the Soreng Theater of the Hult Center for
the Performing Arts here in Eugene, Oregon, USA.  Attached here is the entry
form with our guidelines.  Please read the guidelines carefully, as we
depend on you for accurate information.  Further information is posted at

Thus far, we have received very few entries, so we are very concerned.
Please do not wait to send your entries, because a burdensome flood of
entries in the last week will slow down our review and notification
process.  In previous years, some entries regrettably were rejected because
of errors in entry forms or problems with the film review copies.  If you
allow plenty of time for these problems to be resolved, you can help assure
that you will not be excluded from consideration.  Also, we encourage you to
make plans to attend the Festival to represent your films and also to
participate in our Conference on Cultural Heritage Film.

For our last Festival, we received 87 entries from 25 countries.  We hope to
exceed those numbers this year and to attract the world’s best films in our
genre to this competition, but we need your help to accomplish this.  With
your support and participation, we can continue to grow TAC Festival as a
promotional tool for your good work.

Please share this announcement with others you know who may have films
suitable for entry. Many thanks and best wishes to you all.
