    The 7th Annual HollyShorts Film Festival announced 2011's class of short film winners in a standing room only awards ceremony Thursday night. The HollyShorts Best Overall Short Film went to Mrs. Peppercorn's Magical Reading Room, posted below. Mike LeHan's eerie, sepia-toned film shows the persistence of childish curiosity in the face of a mystery: it's a mix of the rational wondering of Harry Potter and the acquiescent observing of the girl lead from Pan's Labyrinth.

    Think Pink

    Everyone needs a little more Nick Pinkerton in their life. So hurrah for his new weekly column-slash-eloquently-mad-personal-rant at SundanceNOW. How we think back with fondness on the early days of Reverse Shot's blog, from where Pinkerton would humble the film world with a swift flick of his mighty pen. His byline now haunts something he has dubbed "The Classical." Here's why:

    Lynn Shelton To Direct 'Laggies,' Still Eyeing Adaptation Of 'Then We Came To The End'

    Indie filmmaking stalwart Lynn Shelton -- who made a splash with "Humpday" a couple of years ago -- isn't in any particular hurry to go the studio route.

Now, it seems the guy is making up for lost time. With "The Tree of Life" hitting theaters this spring, the director currently has his untitled film -- aka "The Burial" -- in post-production and is also at some stage of development with his "Voyage of Time" documentary which recently added Emma Thompson as a narrator alongside Brad Pitt. Earlier this year word cropped up that Malick was starting another film, one that would be small in nature that would potentially shoot late summer/early fall.

While the list of their go-to fright picks is not unexpected, their descriptions of the films are worth exploring.
