Film Slam #10 on Sunday, October 14th
(released 10/10/2007)

The 10th Film Slam is set to take place on Sunday, October 14th at the Enzian Theater. Hosts Brian Feldman and John Theisen will be there to intro the event and will moderate a Q&A of the filmmakers following the screenings. The films will be just under 50 minutes. The Film Slam starts at 1:00pm. Tickets are $5.00 and for an early Halloween treat, there will be candy.

Did I mention the one and only Brian Feldman of the Orlando Feldmans will be there? This may be your last chance to see him unless you are already fondly familiar with the Feldman Dynamic.

Here's how the competition works if you are new to the event. Everyone in the audience gets a ballot as they enter. There will be 8 films screened. Points are tallied up and the short film with the most votes goes on to the Grand Slam. The GS is part of the Brouhaha Film & Video Showcase, which is also held at the Enzian, on December 8th & 9th. The Grand Slam winner will gain entry into the Florida Film Festival in the spring.

The Enzian Theater is located at 1300 South Orlando Avenue in Maitland. There will be one more Film Slam to enter your film on November 11th, so get your short film (under 25 minutes) into the contest before the remaining slots fill up. Here's a link:
