May the 4th Be with the Film Slam
(released 5/1/2014)

The Film Slam is coming a week early.  Usually the second Sunday of each month, event producer Tim Anderson has informed us that the next Slam is going to be on Star Wars Day, aka this Sunday, May 4th.

The rest is the same.  The place is the Enzian Theater in Maitland.  The time is 1:00pm.  The ticket price is $5.  And the why?  Because you support local independent filmmakers like yourself.

If you are interested in getting your short film screened in a future installment, go to and read more about the monthly contest.  Below are the shorts being screened this Sunday.
