Teen Film Fest Deadline Almost Here! (UPDATED!)
If you're thinking of entering a film in the Teen Film Fest this year, make sure you get your entry in to the Teen Services desk by 9:00 PM on Monday the 26th! If you haven't started shooting your masterpiece yet, well... there's still time, but you gotta hurry. After Monday it'll be too late until next year, so don't spend too long in the editing booth...
Update: Tom Sullivan, who has done special effects and makeup for the "Evil Dead" series, has agreed to be one of the celebrity judges for the Teen Film Fest. Tom lives in Marshall, and is looking forward to meeting Film Fest entrants and seeing their work. He joins Kalamazoo native Matt Dunstone, who worked on such films as Office Space and The Rookie, and James Sanford, film reviewer for the Kalamazoo Gazette. Get your films in front of these guys!
