That’s right Bunky! You missed the March 1st deadline for entering your short-film masterpiece into The Snake Alley Festival of Film at the Capitol Theater in beautiful Burlington, Iowa.
But before you say, “Oh @#$@*%!” we’ve got good news…and some bad news.
Here’s the good news. Just because it’s you, we’ve extended the deadline. The deadline for late entries (that would be you) is now April 1st! (No fooling.)
Now for the bad news. The judges have already strained their beady little eyeballs watching an endless array f really, really good short films. And just because YOU dawdled…they’re going to have to work extra hard and push their little peepers to the limit.
So when your entry is selected, and you’re here for The 3rd Annual Snake Alley Festival of Film—and you see people roaming the streets with blood-shot, teary, runny, puffy eyes, mumbling dialogue—you’ll feel pangs of guilt knowing that it is all YOUR fault. (Or they’re recovering from one of the “after parties.”)
Actually, our judges love it, and they come back year after year. It’s a good excuse to get out of class. (And, because Third Grade can really get boring year after year.)
On a side note, it looks like Lonnie Schuyler’s brother will be attending this year, as well as his Dad. If you know Lonnie, you know you can now expect a triple dose of smart-aleckness this year!
See you in June at The Snake Alley Festival of Film.
