We’re not talking politics here, though everyone’s saying it’s a “must have” for McCain and right now Florida’s still a toss-up–let’s hope sanity and common sense prevail, even in this usually conservative state. Nope, the deadline to which I refer is Florida Film Festival deadline # 2. It’s hard to believe it’s here already, but the Early Entry deadline for Features (films 41 minutes or more) for the 18th annual Florida Film Festival (March 27 – April 5, 2009) hits this Friday, October 31–Happy Halloween! So to avoid those dreaded late fees (though I guess $20 isn’t too bad compared to most), be sure to get your feature-length films of any kind (narrative, documentary, animated, domestic or international) in transit by this weekend. As always, entry info is available at www.floridafilmfestival.com or www.withoutabox.com/login/1139 And if for some reason you’re unable to get it together by the end of the week, you should be aware that the Late Entry deadline for Features is December 5. Whichever you’re able to do, we’re always eager to see new work, so send it on in!
