Film festival postponed

The Sixth International Teeny Tiny Film Festival was scheduled to take place April 6 at the Estacada Junior High School auditorium. Organizers had even hung a banner advertising the event on Main Street in order to promote it.

But the festival has been postponed until later this year, and the banner was taken down around mid-March.

“We’ve received entries, but not as many as in prior years,” said organizer Nolene Triska. “It’s being delayed until fall to ensure a vibrant, diverse competition.”

A March 1 entry deadline was set, and came and went. The new deadline and event date will be announced within the next couple of weeks and the festival’s website will be updated accordingly, Triska said.

The festival, which is open to filmmakers of all ages, showcases both amateur and professional small movies on any subject and in any style. Films must be under 10 minutes in length and family friendly, with prizes given for judges’ choice, best junior film, best drama and more.

Audience members traditionally vote for the people’s choice award while enjoying free popcorn. Judges preview the films before the festival. The winner of the judges’ choice category takes home a statuette of the festival’s mascot.

Film submissions are accepted from local videographers and those all over the world. Past award winners have come from Estacada, out of state and even Europe.

The festival is sponsored by the Performing Arts Group of Estacada and also serves as a benefit for that organization and the Estacada Area Arts Commission.

Films of all different genres are accepted as submissions for the festival. They include action movies, anime, fantasy, drama, science fiction, comedy, Claymation, papermation, computer animation, cartoons, documentaries, mockumentaries, parodies, art films, skit collections and experimental movies.
