'Ten Year' to kick off fest

After whittling a submissions pool of 1,000 shorts down to 300, HollyShorts has announced the pics slated for the seventh annual Hollywood-based fest.

Scribe Jamie Linden will kick off the fest with the premiere of his short, “Ten Year.” “After-School Special,” written by Neil LaBute and helmed by Jacob Chase, will also debut on opening night.

Weeklong fest will feature shorts covering a wide range of genres, including horror, animation, docu and musicvideos. Oscar winning shorts “God of Love” and “The Lost Thing” will also be featured during the fest.

Producers Kevin Chinoy and Francesca Silvestri will receive the HollyShorts Maverick Producers Award during opening night. Prizes are awarded for best short, best director, best commercial and best musicvideo, with post production prizes from $5,000 to $10,000.
