The Thomas Meighan Project

A while back I got an email back from the “Thomas Meighan Film Festival“:

“Hi Siri,

Thank you for sharing your work with us, the staff really enjoyed your Video short “Every Me”. With your permission we would like to show your work at the Thomas Meighan Film Festival on November 11. Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to screen your art and allowing us to share it with the film community in New Port Richey. Thanks Again..
Robert Mateja”

And today it is being screened in America! “Every Me” have yet to be shown in America, so this is a great day for the film. I know it is a small festival and just a screening. But, what matters is to spread the film and your name to as many people as possible, and not to win as many prizes as possible, right? But of course, to win a prize or two can´t hurt…
This festival is held in a old theatre building. The festival is built around historical awareness for the town and building (and Thomas Meighan), you can read more on their website. Their mission is to:
“Recapture the vision of Thomas Meighan by bringing the art of film & video back onto Main Street.  Building a vibrant and diverse art community that supports the integration of Arts & Technology.”
So even if it´s not a big festival, I am really happy “Every Me” is a part of it.
Today I also got a mail from “Festival du film minute de Lille” (The one minute film festival in Lille) in France. This summer I submitted three short films on under 60 seconds to their festival and today I got a mail telling me that two of the films, “The Balloon Girl” and “tiny“, were on the list of the 60 selected movies for the 5th movie minute Lille festival!
So on the 3rd of December these two films will be shown in Lille under the festival. They have three prizes two that are given by the jury and one public voted film. So it will be exiting to see if I will get any mails in december gratulating me on the prize, but probably not. Anyway! Have a look at the films nominated:
