On Sunday, April 19th, The Sylvania Community Arts Commission held the 2015 Shorties. The Shorties are a Film Competition for children, between K through 8th Grade. This unique celebration was the third and final day of the Tree City Film Festival.
I am proud to be on the TCFF committee and the Chairperson for The Shorties. 2015 was the third year for the Tree City Film Festival and was the biggest. It was held in the Sylvania’s Historic Village, inside the Train Barn.
It is NW Ohio’s Premiere Film Festival.
I wanted to share with you the submissions from our future filmmakers. From Elmore, Whiteford, Waterville, Toledo, Sylvania and others– the love of making movies crosses all zipcodes in Northwest Ohio.
As a parent of four athletic children;, we have baseball, soccer, basketball, travel teams and tournaments. There are even travel dance teams now… but nothing for the creative ones. No competitions, nor celebrations for those who dare to dream..
It those creative people, that are changing the world. The Shorties isn’t just about making movies, it’s about supporting those that dare to see the world differently. Giving our children a moment of encouragement to dream.
I am incredibly proud to present the 2015 Shorties Video Submissions. Enjoy
