The Tupelo Film Commission and the Link Centre presents the Southern Arts Federation’s 2nd Annual Short Circuit Traveling Film Festival at the Link Centre on Saturday, January 24th, 2009 at 1:30 p.m.  Short Circuit is the only program that spotlights short films created by filmmakers living and working in the Southeastern United States. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students with ID and will be available at the door of the Link Centre on January 24.  A complimentary popcorn and coke will be provided to each attendee.

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 films. This year, the festival features work by filmmakers from Georgia, Louisiana, and Florida.  Short Circuit will travel from November 2008-May 2009 as a self-contained, three-hour film festival that may be enjoyed in a single afternoon or evening.

The Short Circuit Traveling Film Festival is a program of the Southern Arts Federation, a not-for-profit regional arts organization making a positive difference in the arts throughout the South since 1975.

“Hosting this traveling film festival is another way the Tupelo Film Commission and the Link Centre can help continue to support the works of independent film,” stated Pat Rasberry, Tupelo Film Commissioner.  “I have enjoyed working with Allen Bell, Program Director of the Southern Arts Federation, in regards to bringing this traveling film festival to our city and providing another great event for Tupelo.”
