Just received this message from Tricia Martin over at the Film Pool. They are looking for short (1 minute) film and video work to be presented as part of the ‘Screening Under The Stars’ portion of the Cathedral Village Arts Festival which is coming up soon! My husband and I took part in Montreal’s M60 festival a few years ago and it was a lot of fun – you should do it!
