Holy Crap! Can it really be that time already? It’s hard to believe it’s here, but the Early Entry deadline for Shorts (films 40 minutes or less) for the 18th annual Florida Film Festival (March 27 – April 5, 2009) hits this Friday, October 17. So to avoid those dreaded late fees, be sure to get your short 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 and 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 Shorts is November 14. Whichever you’re able to do, we’re eager to see new work.
