SUBMISSIONS OPEN for DC Shorts Film Festival 2009
Submissions are now open for the 2009 edition of the famed DC Shorts Film Festival! Visit the updated web site at http://dcshorts.com
DC Shorts turns the spotlight on truly independent short films, created by new and established filmmakers in an era when the art of filmmaking is opening to all. We select films from every genre for our competition screenings — with a special focus on films created by metropolitan Washington, DC-based directors and writers. After each screening, filmmakers have the opportunity to speak to the audience as part of a moderated panel.
In 2008, DC Shorts reviewed more than 750 entries from around the globe. We selected 103 short films for screenings at 8 showcases during the competition weekend of September 11-14, 2008, with each show featuring an average of ten short films. Since a major focus of the event is the inclusion of filmmakers, many of the films were represented by the more than 108 filmmakers in attendance from 8 countries. More than 2,600 people attended the screenings.
DC Shorts gives ALL ENTIRES feedback -- a point which impressed MovieMaker Magazine to name us as "one of 20 festivals worth an entry fee," AND as "one of the leading film festivals" in the country.
THE EARLYBIRD DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 15, 2009. Submission fees go up after that date -- so enter now and save!
I look forward to seeing your new works!
- Jon Gann
PS: If you have a film of Asian or European interest, check out the new EuroAsia Shorts Film Festival at http://euroasiashorts.com
Low fees, unique themes, and screenings at embassies and cultural centers throughout Washington DC.

Washington Improv Theater's Summer Brew
Washington Improv Theater is gearing up for their summer run of improvisational comedy shows, starting Thursday, 6/19 (that's tonight!) and continuing through Saturday 7/12. Featuring:
Home Brewers' Kit
Kick the weekend off right ... Thursdays WIT brings you an assortment of freshly brewed shows with all new formulas and ingredients. Taste a different combo each week, including at least one WIT premiere in each batch. It doesn't get fresher than that!
On Tap Domestic
Cool off your weekend with a deep sip of WIT's summer brew. We've taken our old hat formula of a "consistent schedule" and fermented the heck out of it to come up with something that's got a little more kick. Each Friday and Saturday night serves up two distinct performance pairings to perk up your palette. Find a mix with the flavors you'd like to try, or just find the date you want and leave the choice to us. If variety is the spice of life then this summer WIT is … spicy.
Special Guests Tongue & Groove
A foreign import from Philadelphia this troupes shows range from lager to light. Their inspiration comes from the personal experiences and emotional intensity of the audience, so every show, no matter the flavor, always tastes just right.

In college (in Florida), I donated (ahem, sold..) plasma when I needed some extra cash. Are there any labs/ other places that do this sort of thing in the area? Im in Columbia, but willing to drive if it is not too far (maybe 20-30 mins). Google has not produced any helpful results.

Turkeys & Charity
My work hands out frozen turkeys to every employee on the Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving. However, I am vegetarian and therefore won't eat the aforementioned turkey. I considered not taking mine this year (this is my first Thanksgiving as a vegetarian), but I figured there is probably a charity/nonprofit/food kitchen type organization who could use it for their Thanksgiving meal. I live/work in Jessup and am not going to have time to drive far that night.
Anyone know of a charity within 15 mins (driving) or so of Jessup/Columbia who might be able to put this turkey to use? Im sure I could find someone to give it to, but I figure a charity would appreciate it more.
Thanks in advance!

Japanese Steak House
My bf wants to go to a Japanese Steak House for his birthday--the kind where the chef cooks at the table or in front of you. (Food Porn Dinner Theater!) There are none local to us--Anyone have a good reference? The closer to Anne Arundel Co the better. Thanks!
