Do you ever wonder what our FiLMLaB alums have been up to, the writers, directors and actors? Well, one of them, 2014 winning writer Jon Dragt, has been busy in Canby, Oregon, volunteering on the board of directors for the Canby Public Library Foundation. A Willamette Writers member, Jon is helping to organize programs for the new library that will enrich lives through creativity, cultural and educational activities. One of the first programs to launch is the Canby Film Fest taking place Wednesday, October 19th. Willamette Writers is honored to be a part of this inaugural event when FiLMLaB is featured at the Canby Film Fest.
We will be in good company, with Oregon filmmakers showcasing their short films from 7:00-9:00 pm at the Canby Cinema 8 Theater. So if you missed our 2016 short at the Willamette Writers Conference and Portland Film Festival, next week is a great time to come out and see INTERCEPT, written by 2016 FiLMLaB winner, Shaun Radecki and directed by Randall Jahnson.
You can also catch a few more of our previous shorts, including THE RETURN OF BUG EYED BILL (written by Mark Scarbrough, directed by Mike Parisien) and UNWELCOME GUESTS (written by Jon Dragt, directed by Martin Vavra).
The new Canby Public Library opens its doors this Saturday, October 15th. All proceeds from the Film Fest go to support its programs. Buy advance tickets for $10.00 at the Canby Public Library Foundation’s website, or in person at the door for $15.00. The festival will be followed by a Q & A with some of the filmmakers, so make sure to stick around for that and join FiLMLaB at the Canby Film Fest!
