Love Your Shorts Film Festival in Florida!

user
We are not Sundance or Cannes or Toronto . . . We ARE Love Your Shorts. We aren’t like the big film festivals, which is good. And unlike some, we will be fun!  We aim to treat our filmmakers more lavishly (and with more respect) than your more well-known fests.  Our smaller and more intimate feel will make it easier to connect with your audience and fellow filmmakers.  You’ll get more face time with the festival staff and meet our judging panel.  And your odds at winning an awar...

THE SOCIAL NETWORK Kicks Off 2010 NYFF

user
  Future generations will be in a better position to determine whether the introduction of social networking technology in the first decade of the 20th century was a blessing or a curse. Certainly for the entrepreneurs who created new ways for us to communicate with one another, it has been both. Such is the case for the multi-billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, who founded the internet phenomenon Facebook, but who has lost as much as he has gained in terms of the trust and love of his friends...

Clickin' for Love

Director: Pablo Pappano.
Is the world of online dating full of those who can’t survive in the real dating world? What is the average person’s experience? Do most people find their true love and end up as living, breathing eHarmony commercials, or do most give up in disappointment? After using Craigslist to find people willing to do on-camera interviews about their online dating experiences, I quickly discovered that many people had a lot in common—especially their larger-than-life personalities. Audrey is a forty-something would-be actress who fell in love with a mysterious South African boat captain. Marty is an affable, middle-aged father-of-three and swinger with a “black book” containing thousands of names who hopes to find a wife online. Colleen is a single chef who doesn’t want either a one night stand or a boyfriend. She wants something in between. Thirty-something Andy uses online dating and matchmakers but hasn’t found that special someone. Although he did find a woman who, on their first date, offered him $100,000 to father her child. After recording all of these insightful - and sometimes crazy - stories about the world of online dating, I knew I had a fantastic and original movie to make. Internet dating has been around for more than a decade, but it still isn't clear whether online dating really works. Is “happily ever after” a realistic goal for online daters? Find out by watching Clickin' for Love.

DELIVERED

Director: Michael Madison.
Driven by a promise, fueled by revenge. Inspired by Bullitt, True Romance and Vanishing point, the Mojave desert is the backdrop for this heartfelt story of betrayal and redemption. An ecclectic collection of unique characters that include Japanese gangsters, an Italian proctologist, an Armenian art dealer and a hero with a very cool car set the stage for this modern crime thriller shot on RED and edited on CS4 with a totally tapeless workflow. The top notch cast includes Toshi Toda, Robert Rusler, Alana Stewart and Brian Mcguire.Check out the iinterviews with the cast, behind the scenes videos and hundreds of stills shot during production here on Facebook. Make sure to watch the trailer in 1080p.   You can see the trailer at:  http://www.vimeo.com/11069907

Films which have not been reviewed

I was checking through Facebook and I saw a review of Bobby Moresco's newest film which was shown at Newport Beach Film Festival. I had gone to the festival but did not know his film "The Kings of Appletown" was even there and  his is a friend. What I realized ,as a festival organizer and attendee, is that many films do not get their film reviewed.So all that time put into making it and no press. So I decided today to contact some of the fests and find some very cool films which fell ...
