2010 World Wide Shorts Film Festival!
Where: downtown Toronto
When: June 1-6th 2010
Now in it’s 16th year, the World Wide Shorts Film Festival, brought to you by the Canadian Film Centre, is more than just a festival for emerging filmmakers. It boasts one of the largest film markets in North America, master classes by cinema greats, like this year’s directing class with Atom Egoyan and prizes valued in the 70, 000’s. Beyond that it is one of the friendliest, fun, and inspiring shorts fest, as I learned when I sat down with Festival Director, Eileen Arandiaga. Enjoy a listen as we discussed the importance of shorts, what programmers are looking for, how to capitalize on such festivals, and some cool success stories.
