Hollywood Returns to Elgin!
Elgin Short Film Festival will be returning to Elgin for the second year in a row. The Elgin Short Film Festival will take place September 18, 2010. You will not want to miss all the details, criteria, prizes of trophies and money, after show activities, and more when you attend the Press Conference on Wednesday, March 17 at the Hemmens Cultural Center at 4:00pm. Pete Garlock, Director of Sales for the Elgin Area Convention and Visitors Bureau and Co-Chair the Elgin Short Film Festival will host the March 17th Press Conference. Pete has been a member of the Hemmens Advisory Board since 2004. Pete says, 2009 was our inaugural year for the festival, and there was a lot of apprehension involved with it because we really didnt know how it would be received by the filmmakers or the public. But when all was said and done, we received twice as many film entries than we anticipated, and the Hemmens was filled almost to capacity the night of the festival. That, plus the many favorable reviews we received from everyone attending the event, told me we created a great festival that I think will only get bigger and better each year. Please mark your calendars and RSVP to Hemmens Cultural Center if you plan on attending the Press Conference.
