Short Sweet Film Fest comes to Market Garden Brewery February 22nd & 23rd

The third annual Short. Sweet. Film Fest takes place on Saturday, February 22nd and Sunday, February 23rd at Market Garden Brewery.  The festival includes local, national, and international short films under 25 minutes in length.


The film festival has grown in a different way this year.  Besides receiving more submissions from more places around the world and receiving more local films we have created a sense of community in Cleveland.  Many local artists look forward to the festival and this year we have started collaborating with other mediums of art.  We are ending the festival with a mini-music festival featuring several local bands.  We found (to no surprise) filmmakers enjoy music and musicians enjoy film.


This year we are very excited to screen local congressman Matt Zone's film, “Project 5: When I Hear Music”, which features Matt Zone's hip-hop dance troupe from the 1980s.  We are also the first festival to premiere Luke Wilson's new film, “Satellite Beach”, as well as premiering the new Palms music video, “Rogue Warrior”, made by Clevelander Jon Mancinetti.  Bryant Clifford Meyer, member of Palms and Isis, will be doing a Q & A session after the screening.  Filmmakers are flying in from not only all over the country, but from Canada and England as well to do Q & A sessions about their films.
