We Like 'Em Short!

The We Like 'Em Short film festival is fast approaching. This year the festival will take place August 17th & 18th.  The final call for entries is in one month, on July 20th. If you have created a short film, please enter it in our festival. We'd really like to showcase local filmmakers, but to do that we need you to enter. For details, please see our website or email me.

Each year we learn something new about running a film festival and each year we make improvements. After last year's festival, we were advised by some of our entrants that we should start using an online entry system so that it is easier for filmmakers to enter the festival.  That sounded like a great idea, so we signed up and now we are receiving entries from all over the world. That now makes us an international film festival. That's ritzy!

We're working on planning some events and activities around town that will coincide with our festival. We'll have the after-party for filmmakers, much like we did last year. We'll also be working with a local restaurant for dinner specials, and we are hoping to have a guest filmmaker come in and lead a workshop on a film-making related topic. It's going to be a really great weekend!

So, please mark your calendars for the festival, August 17th & 18th, and if you know of a filmmaker who has made a short film, please tell them about our festival.
