Invitation to Short Short Story

Happily Ever After has been invited to participate in the first annual Short Short Story Film Festival taking place in Rhode Island. So what did we say? Yes, of course! As mentioned on their website:
If brevity is the soul of wit, then join us as we celebrate wit in writing, directing, and editing - films that put it all together in five minutes or less. RIIFF's first annual Short Short Story Film Festival features filmmakers from across the globe telling their unique stories in under five minutes. From documentaries to comedies to animation to dramatic shorts, you will see succinct presentations of all kinds of short stories. One night, dozens of short short stories. Short short attention spans welcome! Saturday November 17th 2007 at the Perishable Theater, 95 Empire Street, Providence RI. I.
What can be better than a day of 5 minute shorts? As far as we can tell, a day of 4 minute shorts. :)

Rhode Island Recap

RIIFF: Columbus Theater
Originally uploaded by • g l u b •
Our trip to the Rhode Island International Film Festival was great. We met a lot of really good filmmakers and saw some amazing films, two of which have very good Oscar chances.

Happily Happily did well in our category of Experimental. We took home first place. It was quite unexpected, so much so as we showed up to the awards ceremony in less-than-appropriate attire. But we were thrilled nonetheless.

Not to let a vacation opportunity pass, we also did a little sightseeing around Providence and Newport.

We just wanted to say thanks to everyone who put on the festival. It was world class and we were treated incredibly well. Even if we do not submit to next year's festival there is a good possibility we will return just to enjoy the atmosphere and film selection.
