2014 Statesboro Film
Festival entries due Friday

     The Statesboro Herald and the Averitt Center for the Arts are teaming up again for the sixth annual event to find and honor the best locally made films. The 2014 Statesboro Film Festival is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 17, at the Averitt Center in downtown Statesboro.
    There are only a few days left for filmmakers to put the final touches on their work if they plan to participate, because the final deadline to submit a film is Friday, April 11, at 5 p.m.
       All approved films will be available to watch at statesborofilmfestival.com. There, viewers can begin voting for their favorite films on April 12 and may continue to cast their votes through midnight on April 16. People can vote up to 10 times per day from a single URL address.
    Vote totals will not be shown on the website so that the winner may be revealed live at the festival. The winning film and other submitted films will be shown that evening.
    Complete rules and information about the festival can be found at statesborofilmfestival.com — the festival’s official website.
        Tickets to the Statesboro Film Festival are $5 and can be purchased at the Averitt Center box office, the Statesboro Herald office or by calling 912.212.2787.

Georgia Southern to host 'Walk a Mile in Her Shoes'
    Georgia Southern University will hold its second "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes," an event where men don women’s high-heeled shoes to increase awareness about sexual violence, on Thursday, April 10, at the Russell Union Rotunda. Those who have pre-registered can check-in that day starting at 3:30 p.m. Day-of registration will start at 4 p.m., and the walk will begin at 5 p.m.
    “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is a light-hearted, educational event that aims to raise awareness and encourage communication about gender relations and sexual violence,” explained Alli Anderson, licensed psychologist with GSU's Counseling and Career Development Center. “All of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Statesboro Regional Sexual Assault Center which helps survivors of sexual assault in Bulloch, Jenkins and Screven counties.”
    The goals of the walk are to get people talking about the sexual violence happening in the Statesboro area, help the victims and figure out how to prevent these attacks. Organizers say it is important for men to join the cause.
    While participation is free, $10 donations from students and $15 from faculty and staff are suggested. To register, visit www.tinyurl.com/gsuwams2014. Men can choose to walk in heels or simply walk in support. Women are encouraged to bring their own heels. For more information, call 912.478.5541 or email Dr. Anderson at adefinis@georgiasouthern.edu.
