Newsletter – Sent April 2, 2011


It’s our pleasure to announce that because of you, last weekend’s Shorts & Shots was a huge success! With over 100 attendees and the world premiers of over twenty short films, we couldn’t be more pleased. We hope that everyone had a great time watching the films and was able to meet some new faces and reconnect with old friends.

To those who wanted to be there but were not able to make the event, no worries! We would love to see you at our FREE 21-Day Filmmaking Competition Launch Event in Philadelphia on July 30, 2011.

Feel free to view or download event photography (courtesy of Lee Rosenfeldt & Gary Hanna) from our Facebook Album or Picasa Album.

Again, thanks to our entire staff of volunteers, Project Twenty1 Members, long-time supporters, and new faces  for coming out to Shorts & Shots, and in doing so supporting the art of independent filmmaking!
