BEST OF PROJECT TWENTY1 SCREENING – JANUARY 24th

To those of you unaware: this Wednesday, January 24th,  the top 14 Project Twenty1 films will be screened in one final 2 hour screening at International House, followed immediately by the announcing of Awards for categories like Best Acting, Best Directing, Best Soundtrack, and of course, Best Film.  Check the news section of our website for the complete list of Nominees in each category.

This is an awesome collection of films, ranging the gamut from comedy to drama to horror to mockumentary to science fiction, and is sure to have something for everybody!

AFTER PARTYAfter the screening and Awards announcements (around 9:30), we will be retiring to Marbar at 40th and Walnut to hold our official Wrap Party for the 2006 competition.  Everyone is invited!  Bring your stubs and come celebrate with us!  Catering will be provided compliments of Marbar, and there will be filmmakers, animators, musicians, and artists of all types from near and far to network with, so come along, and bring your friends!  Be aware, this IS a bar, which means 21+ only.  (That’s the state of Pennsylvania talking, not us.)  Sorry, kids!

THE FUTURE

Whether you have a film that will be screened, one that is up for Awards, or are simply a film buff, friend, or family member, there is much more left to Project Twenty1.  Just because this is our final Screening of the Festival does NOT mean that we are done with these films.  In fact, we have already begun talking to other film festivals nationwide to increase exposure and gain additional screenings for our Teams’ films!  If you have contacts at another festival or movie house in your region, please feel free to send them our way.  We’d love to speak with them!

More from us soon.  Thanks for keeping in the loop, and for making our first year so extremely successful thus far.  Hope to see you all on the 24th!  If we haven’t met you in person yet, please introduce yourselves!  We look forward to welcoming you into our rapidly-growing community.

Sincerely,

Quang, Stephanie, & Matt
