Cogswell Polytechnical College is pleased to announce that The Offering, the first animated, short film produced under the umbrella of the Project X class, has been selected for one of the 7th Annual New York City Downtown Short Film Festival Audience Choice Screenings. The Offering will appear in the June 25th block of films at the Duo Theater beginning at 8:00pm. Tickets and additional details are available at SmartTix.
During the Audience Choice screenings viewers watch 4 to 5 films and then vote on their favorite. The top vote getters are invited to participate in the 2011 NYC Downtown Short Film Festival (NYCDSFF) next April.
The NYCDSFF began 6 years ago with 12 submissions. Last year, 1,000′s of films were submitted — so many that the Festival Committee began holding monthly Audience Choice Screenings. Every year is a sell-out, so the 2011 festival is being expanded to night. Showcasing some of the best short films being produced in America and internationally, the festival’s line-up includes provocative dramas, clever comedies, edgy animation and intriguing documentaries.
