…and just my luck, I’m 3,000 miles away.
DC Shorts, the film festival I co-founded, is a finalist for the Washington, DC Mayor’s Arts Awards for Innovation in the Arts. The award is the most prestigious given by the city.
Tony Gittens, Executive Director of the D.C. Commission on the Arts says, “Washington’s artistic talent rivals that of any major world-class city. The Mayor’s Arts Award is our way of acknowledging the amazing contributions made to Washington’s cultural vitality.”
We are so excited — and would love to see you support us at the free ceremony at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall on Monday, March 17, 2008, at 6:00pm. Yes, it is St. Patrick’s Day — but we promise you will be out by 8:00 — in time for green merriment.
I wish I could be there myself, but the honor of nomination doesn’t include a plane ticket for me… but you’ll find my pal Jon Gann, the one who roped me into doing a film festival.
