I’ve been involved with the DC Shorts Film Festival as a film and screenplay judge for the past couple years. It’s such a good time. The movies are interesting, the parties are awesome and there’s a very friendly, constructive buzz about the whole affair. This isn’t Hollywood – these are real people, just like you, who make great short films
DC Shorts will take place Sept 11 – 18 and will feature more 100 short films from around the world plus parties, seminars and a screenplay competition. I was a judge for this year’s screenplay competition. From dozens of submissions, we selected six finalists – these are short scripts which will be read aloud at a staged reading during the festival. The audience will get to vote on the winner, who will receive $2000 to turn their script into a short film.
All the action takes place at E Street Cinema downtown and nearby venues. If you like booze, creative people and interesting films, then it’s an excellent festival to attend.
