The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council is currently accepting submissions for the 2018 Shoreline Short Short Film Festival! This festival aims to support emerging and developing filmmakers in Washington State and encourage appreciation for the art of filmmaking in our community.
Entries of “short short” films must be between 3 and 10 minutes and will be judged by an esteemed jury of filmmakers and film advocates, including Dan Eernissee of the Shoreline Film Office, Tony Doupe, SAG/AFTRA Actor and Shoreline Community College Film Department Professor, and Denise Walz, Co-President of PRR Biz. Accepted films will be screened on Saturday, March 3rd in the state-of-the-art Shoreline Community College Theater, and the best of the best will take home an impressive Golden Sasquatch Award.
