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.

Some cool movie images:

(#20 of 365) Movie Night

I just realized I did two movie themed pictures in a row. Oh well. It’s late, and I’m tired.

My own road movie #2.

My Own Road Movie

movie

Maybe there’s a rainstorm to duck. Or maybe there’s a just an empty afternoon to fill. Or a bad day at work and the only cure is two hours in E Street. Whatever the reason, or for no reason at all, I see a lot of movies. Last year, I drew up a list of my top 5 movies; this year, it’s not so straightforward.

This year, it’s all about the moments. The scenes. The fleeting moods that stick after the lights are back up and the popcorn grease has been washed away.

Like the dance scene in "(500) Days of Summer." In a movie packed with beautiful images–and a soundtrack I’m still listening to almost daily–this scene accomplished the impossible: It put Hall and Oates on my top-played songs of the year.

Or the opening credit sequence from "The Watchmen." The movie couldn’t live up to 20 years of hype (didn’t stand a chance, really), but for five minutes there, boy, didn’t we all have our hopes up while Bob Dylan was singing?

Come to think of it, music matters so much with these scenes. "It Might Get Loud," one of the best movies I saw this year, was a masterpiece of music-lover porn, those three men and their beautiful, beautiful guitars.

The relationships matter, too: The pairing in "Paper Heart" was sweetly honest and brutal; Carl Fredricksen and his wife in "Up" brought me to tears.

Sometimes it’s that very last scene that reinforces a great movie, or makes an OK one seem better. "Up In The Air" ended exactly how I wanted it to; "Adam" saved itself when the boy didn’t get the girl.

Sometimes it’s just about casting: Meryl Streep in "Julie and Julia"? Perfect. The surprise cameo by [you know who] in "Zombieland"? YES! And "Adventureland" made me not hate Ryan Reynolds for the first time, like, ever.

Other movies build to a sense of their goodness: "Coraline" made me hopeful for a generation of kids growing up now; "Moon" took what could have been a bad "Outer Limits" episode and made it so much more.

And then there’s the joyride. "Public Enemies" was a mess, but with Johnny Depp walking around as a ’30s gangster, who cares? "Sherlock Holmes" spent more money and time on costumes than plot, but I’m OK with that. "Brothers Bloom" put Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo in matching fedoras and taught Rachel Weitz how to juggle.

The silliest movie can have such beauty. "Night At the Museum" gave us a peek inside the VJ Day in New York, and it brought to life those Degas ballerinas I pass so often at the National Gallery.

And the most serious movie on the most serious subject–"Hurt Locker–can surprise you. Sigh, another war movie? How’s this one different? Turns out, it’s different in the most significant way possible: it tells a story you care about, with people you care about. That’s exactly what i want from two hours in the dark.
