13th Annual Valencia Film Celebration This Weekend
(released 5/27/2008)

This weekend, the Valencia Community College Film Technology Program will be holding its 13th Annual Valencia Film Celebration.  The event covers two nights, Friday, May 30th and Saturday, May 31st, and will be held at VCC's East Campus in the Performing Arts Center.

The feature H2O Extreme (working title), which just came back recently to shoot some pickups, was lensed mainly at Cypress Gardens in November 2007.  The film stars Chris Carmack (The OC, Desperate Housewives), Rider Strong (Cabin Fever, Boy Meets World), Nikki Griffin (The OC), Tad Hilgenbrink (American Pie: Band Camp) and John Schneider (Smallville, The Dukes of Hazzard), and was produced and directed by local stuntman Bill Scharpf.

On Saturday, they will be showing multiple award winning shorts. Showing that night will be: "I Hate Musicals," "Captain Midnight," "The Coffin Maker," "Body Farm," "Edgar Allan Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Mess," and a "PSA: Short Film About Hate."  Most of these shorts have screened previously at individual Film Slam events.

The event costs just $5 for the general public and is FREE to all Valencia Community College students, staff, and faculty. Students need to have their student I.D's present. Doors open at 7:00pm and the show begins at 7:30pm for both nights.
