DC Shorts Film Festival and Screenplay Competition begins this Thursday, September 6th and lasts until the 16th! I am very, very excited to see what the writers and directors have created!
There are 140 short films that will be shown from 27 countries around the world. Inexpensive tickets can be purchased to view just one group of short films that lasts approximately 90 minutes, a bundle of 90 min showings, an all-access or VIP ticket, etc. The length of each individual film is anywhere from 2 to 25 minutes.
This is more than just your average film festival at multiple venues throughout the DC metro area. It has an annual screenplay competition and other favorite awards for cash prizes and products, free bring-your-own lunch shows to view during the work week, filmmaking workshops, parties at various locations around the city, and most impressively, chef and film pairings where complimentary snacks are matched to the film by local chefs!
This festival has perfect timing - it happens to fall during my birthday, and it has generated even more excitement for my new career as I continue to learn filmmaking and production in school. For more information visit their website.
I wish I could post a preview for everyone, but that would take all the fun and suspense out of it. Who wants to go with me?!
