OK short film fans, the end is most definitely near. This Friday, November 16, is the honest-to-goodness final entry postmark deadline for shorts (all films 40 mins and under) for the 2008 Florida Film Festival (March 28 – April 6). There’s plenty of opportunities for a fine short film to get programmed at the FFF, as there’s generally at least 10 different shorts programs (and over 100 titles) that are featured and celebrated: four (Oscar-qualifying) narrative programs and one animated along with 10 doc shorts that precede features in the American Independent Competition; separate International Shorts and International Animated Shorts programs that are eligible for an Audience Award; our infamous Midnight Shorts program; the Best of Brouhaha Florida Shorts program, and perhaps even a Family Shorts program.
So do not dawdle around any longer. We love the short film format and want to be sure to have the opportunity to program the best stuff out there–period. We look forward to previewing your work.
