box[ur]shorts Announces 1st Awards Night in Hollywood — International Festival ‘Boxes’ Short Films, Creates New Platform for Viewers at Restaurants, Coffee Houses & Laundromats











Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 1, 2006

box[ur]shorts Film Festival, a yearlong short film exhibition taking place internationally at restaurants, bars, coffee houses and laundromats in cities from Los Angeles and New York to Basel, Switzerland and Hiroshima, Japan, today announced its first annual awards night will take place at the Karma Coffeehouse, 1544 N Cahuenga Blvd, in Hollywood on Tuesday, December 19. Doors open at 6 pm and the event starts at 7.

box[ur]shorts, a new form of short film exhibition and concept created by festival directors Giacun Caduff and Ryan Reichenfeld, is an innovative approach to watching movies that becomes part of viewers’ everyday experiences — something one can do while waiting for a table at a restaurant or hanging out at a favorite coffee house.

“Our goal is to bring short films to new audiences and to establish a direct connection between filmmakers and their viewer. We do this by screening at places where the audience has time to watch a short; be that at a coffee shop, laundry store, bar, etc. It’s entertainment to bridge waits along with online streaming of the films – this is how we hope to create a new platform for short films,” says Caduff.

On the box[ur]shorts concept, Denise Mann, Co-chair, Producers Program, and Assistant Professor, UCLA Department of Film, TV and Digital Media comments, “The art-house is no longer hidden away in some small, dank theater, but readily available. There’s an immediacy to this way of experiencing film that is refreshing and exciting.”

box[ur]shorts Film Festival has shown all competing movies during the year in artistic movie jukeboxes at international locations. The films are programmed in four seasons and loop non-stop on different size LCD screens inside boxes and also gives the viewer an option to make a selection from an interactive menu.

The first box[ur]shorts Film Festival Award Night will open its doors for the public to enjoy their top 15 movies on the big screen. Pre-registration to attend the private party event is required at http://www.boxurshorts.com. Chosen by an industry panel of diverse judges, the films will be lined up in a countdown screening for the evening. Based on the judges’ selections, filmmakers will be awarded Golden, Silver, and Bronze box[ur]shorts trophies. And, one filmmaker will receive the box[ur]shorts Audience Award as voted on and selected by the audience both online and that evening.
