April Film Slam is this Sunday the 19th
(released 4/13/2009)

Even with Gerald Godbout's proud mother in attendance at last year's Mother's Day Film Slam, the audience was pretty slim.  Having learned a lesson, the Film Slam has modified its schedule around Easter and Mother's Day this year.

The next two Slams will take place the third Sundays of April and May instead of the usual second.  That means the next one is Sunday, April 19th.  Same place and time, though.  Enzian Theater in Maitland at 1pm.

Here are the short films in this month's Slam.
