SUBMISSIONS OPEN for DC Shorts Film Festival 2009
Submissions are now open for the 2009 edition of the famed DC Shorts Film Festival! Visit the updated web site at http://dcshorts.com
DC Shorts turns the spotlight on truly independent short films, created by new and established filmmakers in an era when the art of filmmaking is opening to all. We select films from every genre for our competition screenings — with a special focus on films created by metropolitan Washington, DC-based directors and writers. After each screening, filmmakers have the opportunity to speak to the audience as part of a moderated panel.
In 2008, DC Shorts reviewed more than 750 entries from around the globe. We selected 103 short films for screenings at 8 showcases during the competition weekend of September 11-14, 2008, with each show featuring an average of ten short films. Since a major focus of the event is the inclusion of filmmakers, many of the films were represented by the more than 108 filmmakers in attendance from 8 countries. More than 2,600 people attended the screenings.
DC Shorts gives ALL ENTIRES feedback -- a point which impressed MovieMaker Magazine to name us as "one of 20 festivals worth an entry fee," AND as "one of the leading film festivals" in the country.
THE EARLYBIRD DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 15, 2009. Submission fees go up after that date -- so enter now and save!
I look forward to seeing your new works!
- Jon Gann
PS: If you have a film of Asian or European interest, check out the new EuroAsia Shorts Film Festival at http://euroasiashorts.com
Low fees, unique themes, and screenings at embassies and cultural centers throughout Washington DC.

Is a click game with a difference. You build up your characted through experience. A bit of fun and something to kill the time when it's quiet at work.
If you are not interested that's cool. Just a suggestion. If you are feeling nice and aren't interested anyway, you could click the link anyway; that's all you'd have to do - you'd never hear anything else about it.
Or you can click the link; register and start interacting with the community. Have a look, see what you think.
It has vampires, which is always good.

welcome to the year 2002
Death. It's... a funny thing, really. A funny thought... A funny idea.. I'm not talking funny haha, here... More.. funny, strange...
What if you die tomorrow?
What have you achieved today? What have you achieved up until this point?
Are you happy... Have you made others happy? Have you made a difference?
Have you improved, changed, become a better person?
Have you said sorry? Have you hugged somebody... Have you told another person you think they are okay...
All the things we don't do and should be doing...
I'm not preaching... You don't have to do what I tell you.. you don't have to be a nice person...
I just think.. death... What if I do tomorrow? What have I achieved?
and I keep on thinking it... You know what's even funnier? I don't do a damned thing..
I'm not out there, doing the right thing.. Making me happy... I'm drowning my sorrows in alcohol... I'm posting to random net users... Telling them about MY problems...
I wish I could tell myself life gets easier... but death... Death comes... Death, it's just too inevitable... I'll be miserable and then I'll die... Current Mood: worried
