6th HollyShorts Film Festival is star-studded Hollywood showcase

Hollywood, California - USA
August 5 to 12, 2010
In the Spotlight this week is the 6th Annual HOLLYSHORTS FILM FESTIVAL (HSFF), offering prime industry exposure and a great slate of prizes in Hollywood, California.

HSFF is primed to continue the impressive momentum it has built since its first edition in 2004. With a unique tradition of exhibiting the independent short-form work of celebrities and filmmakers like David Lynch, Eli Roth, Paul Haggis, Scarlett Johansson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kirsten Dunst, Courteney Cox, Jessica Biel, David Arquette, Demi Moore, and Josh Brolin, HSFF creates a wonderful opportunity for undiscovered talent to showcase their work alongside industry heavyweights.

Filmmakers can be confident that their work is in good hands, as the HSFF jury is full of successful industry pros like Mark Fergus (Writer, CHILDREN OF MEN), Jimmy Jean-Louis (Actor, "Heroes"), Bill Purple (HOLE IN THE PAPER SKY), Jesse Terrero (SOUL PLANE), Jamie Linden (Writer, DEAR JOHN), and Maurissa Tancharoen (Writer/Actress, "Dollhouse"). The industry presence at HSFF does not escape the attention of the press, and the Festival has received favorable write-ups in The Los Angeles Times, In Style Magazine, and indieWIRE. MovieMaker even named HollyShorts one of 25 festivals "worth the entry fee."
