EVENTS / OPPORTUNITIES: 100 second film festival (GLOBAL)


The 100 second film festival is the festival for everybody. What do we mean?
First off, at 100 seconds - anybody can create a video and participate.
There are no restrictions on theme or subject matter - whatever you have in
mind - you can do it! Secondly, all the entries we receive will be published
to the web and catalogued so that you can hand pick your own favorites and
screen a 100 second festival in your community. By using a Creative Commons
license this festival can go anywhere. This project of Lowell
Telecommunications, LTC, is truly a festival like no other - a dynamic
stream of content which is ever evolving where public access mingles with
the avante garde and we want you to be a part of it. The premiere public
screening is July 15th at Evos Arts in Lowell, MA. So get your submissions

1) Make your own 100 second piece
