2020 Shoreline Short Short Film Festival: That’s a wrap on year 4

Friday, February 14, 2020

Lorie Hoffman and Kevin Sheen from the Arts Council

A juried selection of 16 short films made by emerging and professional filmmakers working in Washington were screened in front of a SOLD OUT audience (so amazing!) at the 4th Annual Shoreline Short Short Film Festival last Saturday at the Shoreline Community College Theater!

The winning filmmakers were honored with impressive (but fragile) handmade Golden Sasquatch statues and cash prizes, and the audience voted for their favorite film to win the People’s Choice Award! 

After party at Monka Brewing Company

It was so inspiring to see all of these wonderful films and filmmakers in the same room with such a supportive and energized community. 

The night also included a brief Q / A session with the attending filmmakers and an awards ceremony with a few special presenters including Mary Brueggeman, Sarah Cohen, Jack Malek, and Shoreline City Councilmember Betsy Robertson. 

The filmmakers also attended an after-party located at Monka Brewing Co.

Thank you to everyone who made it out! We look forward to another fun event next year.

Congratulations to our 2020 Golden Sasquatch winners!
