Enzian Film Slam is this Sunday 13th
By Douglas Lorah
The next Film Slam is this Sunday, August 13. Here's a quick rundown if you haven't heard of it. The Film Slam is an indie short film showcase and competition where the winner is chosen by audience voting. It is open to Florida filmmakers.
The screening begins at 1:00pm and is followed by a short Q&A session with some of the filmmakers. The event usually lasts a little over an hour. Each month's winner is advanced into the Enzian Theater's Brouhaha Film & Video Showcase in November. For details on submitting your short film or locating the Enzian, go to http://enzian.org/film/filmslam/.
