  • 1. FALL 2011 EDITION NEWS & IDEAS FROM MASSACCESS/ACM MASS CHAPTER MEMBERS & FRIENDSMassachusetts Flash Film Festival a SuccessBy Adam Dusenberry, Belmont Media CenterThe sidewalk outside the Studio Cinema in Belmont was crowded with moviegoers waiting to see whatMassachusetts filmmakers were able do in just 72 hours.Created by Adam Dusenberry of Belmont MediaCenter (BMC) and produced by entire staff ofBMC, the festival gave 10 teams of filmmakers achance to make a film, get it screened in a realmovie theatre and a chance at a cash prize. Theonly catch was that everything had to be donewithin a designated 72-hour time period. Teamsmet at the kick-off event at BMC on September22nd, to draw the genres and to learn the requiredcharacter, prop and line of dialogue. Then, it was arace against the clock to complete a 4-7 minutefilm.Dusenberry was impressed with the turn-out for thefestival’s first year, “I did not really know how manypeople would respond, but based on the success this year, BMC will probably host it again next year”,Dusenberry said.Ten teams from as far away as the South Shore and as far north as Haverhill participated. A few teamscame from the ranks of members of community media centers, including Brookline Access andBelmont Media. The skill level of the teams ranged from the truly novice to local professionals. Threeindustry judges reviewed each film and selected a professional and non-professional winner.On October 1st a crowd of over 100 came to the Studio Cinema to see the premiere of the films and tolearn who the winners were. All of the films, as well the screening and awards ceremony can beviewed on Belmont Media Center’s website - belmontmedia.org Additionally, the Screening andAwards Ceremony are available on MyMassTV & the Community Media Distribution Network fordownloading by access TV channels to air in local communities.If you’d like more information on this year’s Mass Flash Film Festival, or are interested in participatingnext year, find us on Facebook or email adam@belmontmedia.org .
