KurzFimFestival Opening Ceremonies
by Shelly Schoeneshoefer
I was extremely disappointed in the opening of the short film festival this year, especially since it is an anniversary year. Last year the speeches were dynamic and lively, and this year it felt like they were beating an old rug with a broom in search of flies. The opening films that they displayed last year were so interesting that I wanted to go to the festival and this year only one or two were exciting enough to tickle my nose. I definitely did like the film based on the poem Howl by Allen Ginsburg.
