DROP EVENT

For our Teams, this Saturday’s Event will be about the “3 Fs”: Films, Forms, and most importantly, Fiesta!

1) FILMS

For the Official Teams that cannot personally attend the Drop, NOW’S THE TIME to expedite them to your Ambassador! The Ambassadors are eager to help, but they can’t do anything if they don’t have your film by Saturday! Get them a rough cut first and then ship the polished version later if you have to, just to make sure they have SOMEthing to hand in if your editing system were to explode between now and this weekend!

2) FORMS

Teams, read this. We know it’s boring. BUT… If you are not going to be in attendance this Saturday, we need the Certification and Promotional Forms, available here, from you before Saturday, or we will be forced to disqualify you! We cannot screen (or release on DVD) any films that you have not granted us the rights to screen, and if we can’t screen them, the judges and the audience won’t see them, so you will also be ineligible for Awards! Please fax these forms to us at: 215-689-4403 immediately.

If you ARE going to be present in person, come with forms in hand or be ready to fill them out there before we will accept your film. We need proof from all our filmmakers that you have been granted the rights to use everything that appears in your films. This is equally important as bringing your film itself!

3) FIESTA!

The Drop Event is a party, so bring your whole Team! Bring your friends! And don’t forget to bring your FILM!

This Event is open to the public, so any and all creative individuals reading this right now are invited to come and celebrate the birth of not only a film festival, but of 21 brand-new independent films and animations. This will be a catered Event, so come early and stay all evening if you want. Films must be received by 8:00pm on the dot, but the doors open at 5, and the party will go until 10:00pm. Looking forward to seeing you there!

P21 ON THE RADIO – AGAIN!

As promised, Susan Lewis of WRTI is right now working on a follow-up story to Project Twenty1’s story as part of “Creatively Speaking” two weeks ago. Ms. Lewis has been following films where she can and has been putting together an excellent conclusion to the Project. Be sure to tune in and listen this Saturday between 11:00am and 11:30am to learn about the Project so far, the Drop Event, and the Screenings this coming Monday and Tuesday!

Sincerely,
