From February 11th through February 13th 2011 Sanford will have its very own movie festival! For those of you who haven’t heard of it yet, the “Love Your Shorts” movie festival will feature amateur and professional short films of up to 30 minutes. The program looks very promising with movies in the following categories:
- Animation (Saturday 12pm)
- Documentary (Saturday 2:30pm)
- Comedy (Saturday 7pm)
- Sci-Fi/Horror (Saturday 9:30pm)
- Drama (Sunday 11:30am)
- Florida Flavor (Sunday 2:30pm)
The Opening Night (Friday starting at 9pm) offers a selection of all genres and on the last day of the festival there will be a Best of the Fest event (Sunday 7pm). All movies will be shown at The Greater Sanford Regional Chamber of Commerce at 400 East First Street in downtown Sanford, FL.
I am very excited about this festival as it adds to Sanford’s ever growing arts and culture scene! So come out and support the arts and enjoy these fantastic movies! Tickets are very affordable with only $6 when ordered online (click here to order) or $7 cash at the door (if event is not already sold out!). The audience gets to vote for their favorite movie out of the each block and the winner will be announced at the end of each block. Winners of each block will then compete for the main award of Best of Show on Sunday February 13th.
Several restaurants and bars offer specials and discounts for attendees of the festival, so how about movie and a dinner this weekend? Check out the offers here.
