15 Short Film Festival

Oct. 18, 2009

The Evening Muse

The Deal: In it’s third year, the 15 Short Film Festival– created by Antonio Diaz, Keith Whatley and Ryan Walker – went down last night at The Evening Muse.

The Good: An array of films from varying categories including experimental, documentary, animation, drama, and comedy were  screened. The panel for 15 Short Film Festival did a seemingly good job at weeding though the stack of submissions they originally received and narrowing it down to the films shown.  Highlights of the film fest included The Cemetery People, a documentary about a group of people who live amongst tombs in Philippines, Every Third Bite, a documentary about honeybees and Colony Collapse Disorder , The Mouse That Soared, a cute animated film about a mouse that learned to fly, Bloom, a tragic love story drama, and What's Virgin Mean?, a comedy short from the United Kingdom. But, that’s just naming a few out of the lengthy list of impressive films that comprised the 15 Short Film Festival.

The Bad: Two films, one titled, My Name is Kelvin, in the documentary category and another titled, 6.5 Minutes in Tel Aviv, in the drama category, weren’t able to be shown because of formatting difficulties. But, both will be shown at next years Spring film festival. Better late, than never I guess.

The Verdict: The audience award for best short went to The Mouse That Soared. If you missed the 15 Short Film Festival, be sure NOT to miss it the next time around. Organizers for the event are already planning for their next show in the Spring, and I know, I can’t wait.
