Friends of Film, Video and Arts announces its CALL for SUBMISSIONS.

(New Mexico) Friends of Film, Video and Arts, (FoFVA) a N.M. non-profit under Harwood Art Center, announces its call for submissions for short, LOL flicks varying in length from 1 to 15 minutes for its Third Annual Filmmaker Showcase aptly named LOL Friends of Film Funny Film Fest (Try saying that ten times while on Ambien!), which is being held on Friday, March 5.
Deadline to submit: Wednesday February 3, 2010 at 5pm. You can download the submission form PDF or RTF

FOFVA encourages everyone, of all ages, filmmakers and non -filmmakers alike, to submit a funny film. The categories are: 1-3 minutes, 4-7 minutes, and 7-15 minutes (including credits.) Send one you've already produced, or use a cell phone or borrow a camera. Surprise us with a good story that makes an audience laugh out loud.

FoFVA wants to hear audiences laugh. In a day and age where negativity can rule our newspapers and airwaves - and affect our attitudes - Friends of Film, Video and Arts has decided enough. THIS IS A LAUGHING MATTER! We conspire to bring laughing, that belly ache laugh when you are delightfully caught off guard and the whole audience guffaws together. Not tittering uncomfortably at someone else's expense, but happily, merrily together. Shoulder chips begone.

Your funny flick could screen at FoFVA's Filmmaker Showcase to be held on Friday, March 5, 2010 from 6pm to 9pm at the UNM Continuing Education Building, 1634 University Blvd., NE, in their beautiful 600-seat theater. Tell friends. Tickets $10-$15 at the door.
