On Tuesday, 13th October 2009, the Student Union at Tomas Bata University in Zlin held a “Welcome Party for First Year Students”. The event featuring six different music genres presented on five venues attracted a record number of visitors – more than 2500.
Besides several competitions the highlight of the evening for first-year students undoubtedly was the “initiation ceremony”, during which they pledged their loyalty to the University by raising their right shoe.
Mr. Jan Otruba, a student at the TBU Faculty of Multimedia Communications
, took second place at the Tour Region Film Festival in Karlovy Vary thanks to his film “ZlíNY – Zlín in New York”
. Competing with 128 films entered, all of them focusing on the topic of tourism, he managed to finish in second place
. The picture, also designated as the ZLIN Promo 2008, was shot last year to be shown during an exhibition staged in the Czech National House in Manhattan and was aimed at presenting the current town of Zlín to the Americans. The Tour Region Film Festival 2009 was held in the “Thermal” hotel between 7th
October as a part of the 42nd
edition of the international Tourfilm festival.
This year the Library at Tomas Bata University in Zlin will co-organize Bibliotheca Academica, a prestigious meeting of university librarians coming from all over the Czech Republic. The Association of Libraries of Czech Universities is the main organizer of the event. 150 employees working in university libraries will meet in Zlin between 3rd and 4th November 2009 in order to discuss the following topic: “How to boost the prestige of libraries at higher education institutions“. Within the supplementary programme the guests will visit the Shoe Museum, the Bata Villa and other architectural sights of the town.
Students at the Department of Animation and Audiovisual Arts of the Faculty of Multimedia Communications at Tomas Bata University in Zlin were again successful in a competition, this time at the 31st edition of the Festival of Czech Film and Television Comedy entitled “Novoměstský hrnec smíchu“ (Laughing Pot of Nové Město).
The movie "Brutpong" directed by Tomáš Hubáček was announced as the Audience Award winner in the “Students’ Laughing Pot“ section. According to the festival’s tradition, the time during which the audience was laughing when watching the film within the competition was the decisive factor – the award winning movie made the spectators laugh during 28,33% of its total duration.
The Student Union at Tomas Bata University in Zlin has organized the event entitled “Welcome Party for First Year Students”, to take place this evening, i.e. at 21:00 on 13th October 2009. As every year, there will be a varied programme held at five venues.
At Flip and Music Land the visitors can have a good time listening to oldies, “Velké kino” (Grand Cinema) will be reserved for fans of house, electro and D’n’B, at Golem the students will be able to enjoy the performance given by the bands My Wave and The Roads and Klid will be the centre of “chill-out”. First-year students have to pay an entrance fee of 40 CZK (using their ISIC card), other persons will pay 50 CZK, with one ticket valid for entrance to all venues. A number of competitions and a festive ceremony (traditional rite featuring a shoe) will take place during the evening - around midnight all “freshers” will be “initiated”. i.e. allowed to join the ranks of TBU students. Since 2006, the event has become very popular with TBU students – every year at least 2000 arrive to attend the party. Everyone is cordially invited to come.
About a hundred bold competitors equipped with pillows met in front of “Velké kino” (Grand Cinema) at 17:00 on Wednesday, 7th
They came to enjoy the first ever Pillow Battle to take place in the Zlin Region. The event had been prepared by the Student Union at Tomas Bata University in Zlin, in cooperation with the Golden Apple Cinema, other cinemas in Zlin and the server http://vychytane.cz/
The organizers needed one hour and a half to clean the whole place. A non-professional photo competition is underway, the author of the best picture, to be selected by fans on the social network “Facebook”, will be awarded air tickets in order to travel around Europe. The contenders can send their pictures to the e-mail address: email@example.com
. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, 13th
October 2009, during another event organized by the Student Union – welcome party for first-year students, to be held in local clubs.
The Department of Animation and Audiovisual Arts of the Faculty of Multimedia Communications at Tomas Bata University in Zlin has achieved another notable success. Ms. Zuzana Dubová, a fresh graduate from FMC, was awarded the Jury Prize at the Short Movie Festival in Potenza (Italy) in recognition of her film entitled "3 Days".
The Faculty of Humanities at TBU in Zlín would like to invite all students, academic and non-academic employees at TBU in Zlín to participate in the voluntary event entitled “Donate Blood with the Faculty of Humanities at TBU in Zlín
The Student Union at Tomas Bata University in Zlin, in cooperation with the Golden Apple Cinema, other cinemas in Zlin and the server Vychytané.cz, invites all students to participate in the first ever Pillow Battle fought in the Zlin Region. The event is scheduled to take place in the car park in front of “Velké kino” (Grand Cinema) at 17:00 on Wednesday, 7th October 2009.
Nevertheless, the point of the Pillow Battle is not you should punish persons you don’t like, known or foreign to you, and - what is most important – we are not looking for a winner. The main idea is to have a good time, laugh, tear up a few pillows and return to childhood. During the event a non-professional photo contest will be held. Everyone will be enabled to take pictures, make all sorts of audio and video recordings or ask any of the organizers a question.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
