The 2009 Theodore Case Film Festival seeks entries. The mission of Auburn's only home-grown film festival is to promote the creative efforts of central New York filmmakers of all ages, celebrating the legacy of sound film pioneer Theodore Case. Festival organizers are actively seeking entries, spreading the word in middle schools, high schools, colleges and movie houses throughout Central New York.
The Theodore Case Film Festival, now in its sixth year, has become one of the highlights of the year for area filmmakers. More than 50 entries were submitted to last year's Festival, evenly distributed between teen and adult filmmakers.
Movies, on any subject, may be entered on either VHS tape or DVD, and must be 10 minutes or less in length. Deadline for entries is May 1. Entry forms may be picked up at the Cayuga Museum, 203 Genesee St., Auburn, or can be downloaded from the Events page at the Museum's
Web site, cayuganet.org/cayugamuseum.
The public screening of the 2009 Theodore Case Film Festival winners will be held at the Auburn Public Theodore on Saturday, June 6. The theater is on Genesee Street in downtown Auburn, the city which is proud to
proclaim itself "The Birthplace of Talking Movies."
