Entries Being Accepted for Lamorinda ShortDocs Film Fest for All Ages


    Registration is open for Lamorinda ShortDocs, a short documentary film competition held by the Lamorinda Arts Council, and this year hosted in conjunction with the California Independent Film Festival (CAIFF).
    Entries of short documentary films, six minutes or less, will be accepted through June 16. Now in its fourth year, the competition will accept G-rated submissions from anyone 5 years of age or older who lives, works or attends school in Orinda, Lafayette or Moraga and includes Walnut Creek students in the Acalanes Union School District. Film submissions will be judged in one of four categories: elementary school, middle school, high school and adult. The audience votes for an Audience Favorite Student Film.
    The competition culminates in a red-carpet screening event held at the Orinda Theatre Aug. 25 at 11 a.m., featuring selected films and an awards presentation. This is the first year the Lamorinda Arts Council and CAIFF have worked together on the competition and organizers at both organizations say they are excited about what the partnership will bring.
    Derek Zemrak, founder and president of CAIFF, says “I worked on the ShortDocs festival as a judge last year, and decided that it seemed like a good fit for CAIFF to act as host to these talented local residents, who range from amateurs to experienced filmmakers.”
    Filmmakers are encouraged to register for the festival at https://lamorindaarts.org/for-Filmmakers.
