Attention filmmakers!

The Roots Factory (1878 Main Street) and The Barrio Logan Arts District are accepting independent short film submissions for their first annual Barrio Film Fest until October 31.

“The Barrio Film Festival is seeking conscious short films that reflect life through art, music, community, culture, and struggle,” the website states. “Our focus is to showcase films that explore sub-cultures of people and communities, who live in everyday working class neighborhoods in the US, and around the world.”

Narratives, documentaries, experimental shorts, and animations must be 30 minutes or less. Music videos can be no longer than 5 minutes. All submissions must have been produced between 2009-2012.

Films produced before 2009 can still enter, but will not be eligible for prizes.

The festival will be held on November 24 and 25 with screenings in local art galleries, cultural centers, and businesses.

Thanks, I think :) I don't plan to do much movie criticism, but do have a handful of movie-related stories on the horizon. Stay tuned.
