Courteney Cox on the red carpet

We had a banner opening last night at LA Shorts. Plenty of celebrity and filmmaker turn out to give the opening of LA Shorts Fest 09 the festive atmosphere it needed to showcase all of the wonderful talent. Pictures are rife all over the internet. You can access our Facebook pages or do a Google search to see what you missed if you weren’t able to attend.

The celebrity shorts were very well received. Many in the audience expressed surprise at how well they were produced and the variety of subjects covered. There was a Q&A session that followed the screening with Scarlett Johansson, Courteney Cox and Kirsten Smith where they discussed some of the difficulties they encountered. Scarlett had to cut one minute out of her 8 minute short in order to comply with the “New York, I Love You” anthology project requirement that  length be no longer than 7 minutes. Kirsten had a DP and 1st AD who clashed. All expressed interest in directing again.

Now, on to the main event. The mix of quality shorts this year is staggering. Many of the shorts have already won multiple awards on the festival circuit so if you have an interest in quality, independent short film, get your tickets now at www.laemmle.com.
