SPRING FLICKS ANNOUNCEMENTS (Spread the word)

Due to the large number of entries, we are adding a THIRD evening to the festival.

NEW SPRING FLICKS 2010 DATES: April 23, 24 & 25 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) starting at 6pm each night (probably about 4 hours each night).

The AWARDS CEREMONY will be after the last film is screened on Sunday night – and the judges' scores have been tabulated. Pizza will be served.

PLEASE NOTE: The Fisher Pen prize money will be awarded to the name of the person(s) who submitted the entry form - as follows:

JURY PRIZE, BEST SHORT: $1500
JURY PRIZE, BEST SHORT, 1ST RUNNER-UP: $1000
JURY PRIZE, BEST SHORT, 2’d RUNNER-UP: $500

The AUDIENCE AWARD and awards to the other categories (BEST DIRECTOR, etc.) will be assorted prizes as available. Each category will also be awarded a trophy.

FUNNIEST RUMOR EVER: “No one from UNLV film stands a chance of winning Spring Flicks because Professor Schmoeller recruited 13 of his friends at Paramount Studios to make top-notch shorts to sweep the Fisher Pen prizes.”

If you believed this rumor, you probably also believe I can actually, really and truly spin a beer bottle on my finger tips.
