Resolutions Or Regrets?

Well folks, it’s a brand-new year and time to look forward to what the future can bring.

We hope that one of your New Year’s Resolutions was to submit a short film, a screen play, or simply to attend The Snake Alley Festival of Film.

This year the film fest will be held from June 4th through the 7th, 2014.

If you were there last year, you know what a blast this film festival is. The people who missed it were totally bummed out.

This year promises to be even bigger and better judging by the entries that are already coming in. they look fantastic.

The early-bird deadline is February 1st and comes with a nice discount.

The Snake Alley Festival of Film was written up in Movie Maker Magazine and mentioned in The Huffington post. Some of last year’s film makers from around the country are here in Iowa working on a project called “Hotel P” including last year’s People’s Choice winner from Boston.

If you’ve never been to Burlington, Iowa and The Snake Alley Festival of Film, it should absolutely be on your “bucket list!” Come just once—you’ll be hooked for life.

Don’t spend the rest of your life wondering “what if?” Come this year and you’ll have no regrets.

Complaints? We Don’t Do No Stinkin’ Complaints!

SNAFF Complaint Department

About the only complaint I heard all weekend was that The Second Annual Snake Alley Festival of Film was over. No one wanted to leave Burlington. And I can understand that sentiment.

We were surprised by the ladies who visited from The Huffington Post. (They were there for something else and we managed to convince them to spend a little extra time at the film fest and Cyn-a-Palooza. And…we had another write-up in Movie Maker magazine. Burlington is on the radar of the art and film community.

Of course, our complaint department pictured above may have had something to do with the lack of complaints. (Just kidding! That’s me, Lonnie’s Dad—a couple of days after the film fest—visiting friends on their farm. We just wanted to use the picture in a blog post.)

There were regrets from the people who didn’t make it to the fest, and some tears from those who had to travel home after meeting and making some wonderful new friends.

I’m back in Florida and gearing up to get back to work. We’re missing Iowa already.

If you get the chance to go to next year’s Snake Alley Festival of Film, block out those days on your calendar. They’re brainstorming and from what I overheard, it going to be bigger and better than ever.

I had the chance to work with some amazing people. If this is an example of Iowan hospitality…I think that other parts of the country could learn from them.

I hope to see you all there next year.
