"Minaret" at the Local Sightings Film Festival

The husband of a good friend of mine has his first film, "Minaret," featured in the Northwest Film Forum’s 9th Annual Local Sightings Film Festival. Matthew Cibelli's 11 minute film is about a woman, an old man, and a "grim promise." It's filmed on location in Portland, Oregon. "Minaret" has already played at two other film festivals, and it's one of eight short films up for an award. I've seen "Minaret" on the small screen (i.e. computer laptop), and it looks good. As if that weren't enough, it sounds good, too. It sounds like a real movie.

"Minaret" is screening on Wednesday Oct. 11, 2006, at 9:30pm. The film is part of the ‘Collected Stories’ shorts grouping. If you're local, come see "Minaret" on the big screen. Because Seattle is such a low-key city compared to Hollywood, tiaras and designer gowns are strictly optional. As someone once wrote in a guide-book, dressing up in Seattle means wearing the clean pair of khakis.

Tiara and designer gown sounds good! Low cut tops are especially sophisticated! One of the wonderful things about modern technology is that any Tom, Dick or Harry can become a film-maker. We're no longer kept out by big business or financial restraint and the net gives people a launchpad. I love this subversive element.

Very cool!

I'm sure you're disappointed that you can't wear your tiara aren't you princess ;)

That does it! I'll wear my tiara. That'll show 'em. Everyone will think I'm the star of some film. Hah!
