The next Film Slam is June 10th at the Enzian Theater in Maitland. If you are new to the Film Slam, it is a monthly short film screening and competition. Audience members vote and rate the films. The short with the most points is announced on the following Monday and that film is submitted into the Brouhaha Film & Video Showcase at the end of year.
The Slam starts at 1:00pm. Tickets are $5 per person. Included with admission are not only the screenings, but also a Q&A with the filmmakers at the end. The Q&A session is hosted by producer and film critic Tim Anderson.
