Film Festival shows "10-second" movies

from sfgate.com:

JULY 4, 2006

About 100 similar films broken into 10 different categories will be screened Tuesday for about one hour on the back wall of the Soap Factory art space for the second Ten-Second Film Festival.

Filmmakers weren't allowed to create their movies with real video cameras. Rather, they used digital cameras and camera-equipped cell phones to create the unedited films that last no longer than 10 seconds.

Last year, 450 people watched films under themes including "Arthouse,""Old Timey Silent,""Most Special" and "Most disturbing."

Pennington has gotten more than 300 movies sent to his e-mail since April and narrowed those down to a lucky 100 that'll be shown at the festival.

Pennington received six movies from Gale Shiftman, a 59-year-old secretary at North High School in Minneapolis.
