Film Festival Citizen Podcaster Contest

By Sheyla Mohlo

For those of you who are not familiar with new technology and
what it all means, let’s first start off with some definitions.
What is a podcast? According to the Wikipedia, a podcast
is a media file that is distributed by subscription (paid or
unpaid) over the Internet using syndication feeds for playback on
mobile devices and personal computers Like radio, it can mean both
the content and the method of syndication. The latter may also be
termed podcasting. The host or author of a podcast is often called
a podcaster.

Now that you have learned some new terms, let’s talk about the
actual contest itself. The film festival’s official podcasting station hosted a
competition where any citizen interested was to tell them in 30
seconds or less or 250 words, why they should be the star citizen
journalist for the festival. The winner selected—the podcaster—will
get to complete a video interview with a star and later attend an
SBIFF after party. Be sure to tune into the station to hear the
winner announced.
