The last two times this festival happened I was too busy trying to get my new feature Date Number One off the ground, but this time around I am definitely going to try to go see some of the no doubt excellent short films Jon Gann & co have gathered from all around. Looks like DC Shorts takes care of their filmmakers really well:
" Filmmakers at DC Shorts are provided with opportunities to meet and exchange ideas with other filmmakers in our unique Filmmaker's Lounge, a gala red carpet party, sightseeing trips in downtown Washington, DC, as well as housing and meals. "

So all you short filmmakers out there, submit yer flicks, maybe you'll have a good reason to come hang out in DC in September.
