If October’s Horror-Fest was all about the heebie jeebies, than December’s A Merry Movie Christmas is all about the warm and fuzzies. The centerpiece of this all ages Christmas-inspired event will be the holiday edition of the Guerilla Shorts Showcase.
Local aspiring filmmakers were given the theme “Christmas” and the dialogue line “Peace on Earth.” These individuals then had a limited amount of time to put together their short film projects using any resources available to them. On, Dec. 22, come on out to the Electric Theater and see what these talented storytellers put together. Get in on the action and vote for your favorite short as there will be an Audience Choice Award presented to the strongest movie of the bunch.
In addition to a handful of locally made short films, the event will include a screening of a Christmas classic. And to top it all off, programmers have also just received word that a very special guest is making time in his hectic work schedule and will fly all the way in from the North Pole to be at the event, so be sure to bring the kids.
Finally, it should be noted that most of the proceeds from A Merry Movie Christmas are going to Switchpoint and the Dove Center here in St. George. Come on out and support local filmmaking. But more importantly, support two outstanding causes. After all, tis’ the season of giving.
