Tips For Writing A Bibliography

There are a few things you need to make sure to add in your bibliography when writing one. Sometimes the thought of writing a bibliography is enough to freak anyone out, but it doesn’t have to be. In this article we will give you a few tips for writing a bibliography.

First of all be sure to include the title of the book in your bibliography. You may be surprised at just how many people forget to include this vital information. You need to make sure to include any subtitles as well. The full title of the book is required for any good bibliography.

Next you will need to include the author or authors of the book. Be sure to list the author or authors in the last name first, first name last format in your bibliography. Be sure to add Jr or Sr if there is any to be included. Page numbers are also very important to include in your bibliography. If someone is reading your bibliography and you give credits then they will surely want to know what page in which to turn to find these credits. I would think it would be very frustrating for someone trying to read a bibliography without page numbers included.

You also need to include the place of publication in your bibliography. There is no reason to include the state if the city is well known. Be sure to type the publisher and not the printing company in case they are not one in the same. Sometimes they will be the same so just pay attention to that if that is the case. Last but not least, do your best to put everything into your own words so that when someone actually reads your bibliography they will know that you actually wrote every word yourself.

The KC Filmmakers Jubilee: Helping Local Filmmakers Get Noticed

If you love films and film festival’s but weren’t able to get to Sundance, you should think about heading to Kansas City. Their annual film festival, the KC Filmmakers Jubilee, has been going on for more than 15 years, and you’re sure to have a good time as well as see some really good films that have been made by independent film producers.

The amount of time you spend at this April film festival depends on your schedule. The festival goes on for five days, you can spend the entire time watching one good movie after another, or you can pop in for a day and spend the rest of your vacation taking in all the great sights Kansas City has to offer.

The KC Filmmakers Jubilee was first started in 1996 by Fred Andrews who wanted to give the very large and active underground filmmakers who lived in an around Kansas City and opportunity to showcase their skills. Since film’s a different artistic medium, they weren’t able to take advantage of the other opportunities other artists have found in Kansas City. The KC Filmmakers Jubilee changed that.

At first, the KC Filmmakers Jubilee was a little different. It started out as small monthly events that brought the Kansas City filmmakers together, and helped them develop their work.  When Andrews decided to create the KC Filmmakers Jubilee 27 filmmakers participated, and Andrews used their entry fees, which totaled $270 to get the whole show up and running. It was more successful than anyone could have ever imagined. Today the festival has an operating budget of more than$200,000 and is run entirely by volunteers. In addition to some very impressive prize money, the KC Filmmakers Jubilee helps local filmmakers develop their skills.
