Just Make Media!


Friday, March 17, 2006


Despite being hobbled by few film selections from the big international film festivals this winter due to staff shakedowns and Al Milgroms health condition (we wish him the best), email sent from Rick Hansen calling for local submissions suggests the Minneapolis international festival might still be coming to a theater near us.

Minneapolis-St. Paul Int'l Film Festival Seeks Local Work

We're looking for Minnesota-made shorts and medium-length films of any genre (narrative, docs, experimental). Maximum length 40 minutes. Films that have screened in the M-SPIFF in the past are ineligible. Send a DVD or a VHS:

Minnesota Film Arts
Attn: MN Shorts
309 Oak Street SE
Minneapolis, MN 55414

DEADLINE: Must arrive in office by March 25

We're also looking for your video-blogs and streaming shorts. Send a DVD or VHS to the above address, or send a URL to info@minnesotamovie.com

Don't email joe@mnfilmarts. Joe was the head projectionist at Oak St, but he resigned last Friday because he couldn't watch MFA run the place into the ground any longer. Isaac Gale, the theater's other projectionist, resigned with Joe. In case anyone's counting, this means that all the theater's projectionists have resigned (Andy Hersey, who worked at Oak St since 1995, left in January, when he learned that the building was being shopped to developers).

Not good. I hope the best for Joe, Isaac and Andy and praise their integrity. How can the community stop the bleeding?
