Red Carpet Belmont: Flash Film Festival Saturday

Second annual event will have two screening of really short – 4 to 7 minutes – movies.

It's the Oscars for the really, really short film community as the Second Annual Massachusetts Flash Film Festival is having its screening on Saturday, Oct. 6 at the Studio Cinema on Trapelo Road.  

Industry judges selected first and second place winners with the overall winners  taking home a $500 prize.

This year 12 teams will compete for the grand prize. The public is invited to the screening of their creative work at the Belmont Studio Cinema at 376 Trapelo Rd. 

There will be two screenings, a matinee screening at 2 p.m. and the awards screening at 4 p.m. which will include a red carpet with E-TV style interviews and the awards presentations following the screening. 

This year the public can get in on the fun as prizes will be given out for the best red carpet look. The audience at both screenings will be able to place their votes for the Viewer's Choice Award as well.  Tickets are $5 CASH at the door for one screening, $7 for both. 

The festival organizers would like to give a great big thank you to the Studio Cinema for, once again, giving us the theatre for the screening.
