It's that time of year again...the countdown to The Valley Film Festival's opening night: 11.11.11.
In addition to it being International Spinal Tap Day ("The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven...") it's the 11th Annual Valley Film Festival. Kismet!
There's still time for you to submit a short or feature, in any genre. The VFF11 call-for-entries is open through August 15th. The VFF11 program will be announced around September 15th, with ticket sales starting October 1st.
Our countdown will celebrate our small victories and our 2011 sponsors & supporters, as well as share our day to day ramblings and submission musings until T-Minus 1 arrives. Join us!
For example, a trend that our screening group noticed was, practically every short film we reviewed this week included a shot of the iconic Hollywood sign. No joke. At one point we took bets. Cyrus won.
Now it's your turn! What trends have you seen in films recently? This could be anything from genre, to product placement, to audience participation in the theatre.
Contribute. It's fun.
The 2011 Valley Film Festival will take place November 11-13 at the Whitefire Theatre in Sherman Oaks.
