The Haywood County Arts Council is pleased to announce a one-time screening of the Southern Arts Federation’s 3rd Annual Short Circuit Traveling Film Festival on Saturday, February 13, 2010 at 7:30pm at Beall Auditorium on the campus of Haywood Community College, 185 Freedlander Drive, Clyde, NC. Tickets include all twelve films of the Short Circuit Film Festival and are available in advance for $7.50 per person at the Haywood County Arts Council office at 86 N.

The Short Circuit Film Festival is presented locally by Ms. Tami Ford of the Salon & Skin Spa of Hazelwood Village and Dr. Michael Brown of Rejueva’ Cosmetic Dermatology, and lead media sponsor, Smoky Mountain News. Additional sponsors include Haywood Community College and the Film & Video Production Technology program, The Groovy Movie Club of Haywood County, and New Meridian Technologies. Short Circuit Traveling Film Festival is a program of the Southern Arts Federation (SAF), a non-profit regional arts organization making a positive difference in the arts throughout the south since 1975.

The Short Circuit Traveling Film Festival is comprised of 12 short films selected for their artistic merit by a panel of esteemed media arts professionals. These engaging selections range from fiction and animation to experimental and documentary. The 2010 festival features work by filmmakers from Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, and Tennessee. The films are: “Falling to the Top”; “Faster Pastor”: “Flight Lessons”; “Monster Movie”; “My Deer Friend”; “Pollenating”; “Raised on Rice and Gravy”; “Si Tú No Estás”; “Sunlight & Babies”; “The Farm Team”; “Up-Set”; and, “Wheels.” Short Circuit is the only program that spotlights short films created by filmmakers living and working in the Southeastern United States. The Short Circuit Film Festival is three hours in duration and includes an intermission and concession sales.

SAF creates partnerships and collaborations; assists in the development of artists, arts professionals and arts organizations; presents, promotes and produces Southern arts and cultural programming; and advocates for the arts and arts education. The organization works in partnership with the state arts agencies of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. For more information on the Southern Arts Federation and its programs visit www.southarts.org.
