That’s a lot of “F”s. Yes it’s true film fans–the weeks are flying by and the early entry deadline for shorts for the 2008 Florida Film Festival (March 28 – April 6) is actually upon us. The first of four deadlines to rear their ugly heads is October 12, and shorts (films under 41 minutes) need to be postmarked or at least in transit this weekend to avoid the dreaded $20 late fee. Just so you know, early entry deadline for features is a couple of weeks from now (Oct. 26), and late deadline for shorts is Nov. 16 while late entry for features is November 30.
So, the time to act is NOW!! Stop the dawdling and send in your latest cinematic creations right away. Don’t despair over final sound mixes, end credits, or color corrections if your perfect final cut isn’t quite ready. We are used to previewing rough cuts and works-in-progress, and my selection committees are chomping at the bit to look at some really good stuff. Information and entry forms are available at Without a Box or FloridaFilmFestival.com
