One of the unique features of SNAFF is how we bring the short screenplay finalists to life. In years prior we’ve done live stage readings, featuring local talent acting out each screenplay on the stage at the Capitol Theater.
This year, we’re trying something new.
Each of the six finalists will have an intimate live table reading with a full cast in the upper annex of the Capitol Theater. Actors and screenplays will be provided. All we need is you, the writers!
On Thursday, June 22 from 4:00pm-6:00pm we will feature:
