 VEMU/Estonian Studies Centre archival contest "Preserving our history"

We are looking for contributions from Canadian Estonians, but in particular from children and young people, as they inherit Estonian culture from the previous generation.

See Events for details

 Search for native Estonian Speakers (Edmonton) 

We are a small recording studio based in Edmonton in search for native Estonian speakers whose Estonian is their mother language without any accent.

We have occasional projects for which we need male and female narrators to read various text in a recording studio. 

The narrator should be a fluent reader and have a good pronunciation and expression.

The job pays $20 per hour on average.

There would be an initial meeting/audition to record a short 60 second demo of his/her voice.

There could also be other potential projects coming up.

I would very much appreciate if you can recommend some people or pass this message to interested people.

Thank you very much for your time and should you have any question please do not hesitate to call me

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Two Estonian Films Up for Oscar Nominations

24 September (ERR), 2012

Two Estonian-made movies will be submitted for consideration for the Oscars this year.
Toomas Hussar's "Seenelkäik" (“Mushrooming”), a black comedy about a trip to the woods gone wrong, will be entered for Best Foreign Film. And an animated short by Ülo Pikkov called "Keha mälu" (Body Memory) will vie for Best Animated Short Film.

The five-member national nominating committee was led by the Estonian Film Foundation's external affairs director Tristan Priimägi.

Pikkov's animation got the nod because it won the best animated film title at the Krakow short film festival and it also had a run at the Pasadena arthouse cinema Playhouse 7. "Body Memory has a pretty good chance of getting spotted, I think," said Priimägi on uudised.err.ee. "It could also win the Oscar for best animation."

Thanks - to Jaanipaev attendees!  -  Photos - see EVENTS
