Michigan’s Cabin Fever Film Fest still accepting entriesWritten by Matt Liasse | | email@example.com
The deadline to enter the Cabin Fever Film Festival was extended to noon Jan. 10.
The contest, sponsored by the Tecumseh Center for the Arts, is accepting entries of short films to be shown at the festival, which will take place at 7 p.m. Jan. 18 and will be open to the public. Films can range from two to 10 minutes in length and all genres are welcome. This festival is not limited to residents of Michigan.
Sales and Marketing Assistant Joanna Gall said the festival is meant to encourage locals to become involved in the arts. The center especially aims to encourage youth to join.
The festival was planned in response to the successful inaugural Halloween film festival, held Oct. 26. Gall said she is looking to host these events annually.
The festival will show one and a half hours of short films. The event is sponsored in part by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. Snacks will be available, including popcorn for a donation and drinks for a set price.
The center aims for locals to “experience the excitement of a live performance,” Gall said.
Tickets for the festival are $5. For more information, or to download an entry form, visit thetca.org. Entries from anyone 18 years old or younger are required to provide a permission slip from a parent or guardian.
