Selection for ‘Back Down the Highway’ Short Film Contest:

February 23, 2012 § Leave a comment

ImageIt’s been an exciting week and a half for us around here reading all the script submissions which came in for our first ever short film contest.  We were really impressed by the quality of the writing and creativity thrown at this challenge, and it definitely made for a difficult decision making process.  In the end though, we’ve made our choices and here they are in no particular order:

  • “Maintenance Man” – Director Gayatri Bajpai, Producer Lisa Newell
  • “Bull by the Horns” – Director Tito Kamel, Producer Tito Kamel
  • “Two Skaters” – Director Jayme Cowley, Producer Samuel Luk
  • “Dancing in the Ashes” – Director Jordan Barnes Crouse,  Producer Dylan Thompson

Please check back in regularly to see updates from each team about their production process and keep up to date with all the developments.

The results of all this hard work will be seen in a theatrical presentation at the Pacific Cinematheque on May 29th, 2012.  Following the presentation of the “Back Down the Highway” compilation of shorts, audience members will be invited to stay for a rare local 35mm screening of “Highway 61″, as well as a “meet the filmmakers’ reception in the Cineworks studio (cash bar).
