Library sponsoring second annual home movie festival

fawnrescue

The Wimberley Village Library is seeking amateur movies for the city's second annual film festival and awards competition.

The awards are called BAMBIs (for Best Amateur Movies by Indies), and will be gold fawns mounted in trophy-like fashion. In addition to the usual awards, a People's Choice Award will also be given.

"This is an opportunity for all those talented video producers in our area to get some positive exposure and rewards for their creativity," said Carolyn Manning, library director.

Entries must be submitted on DVDs and are due in the library by 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 31.

The festival and awards ceremony will be at 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 23, 2016, at the Emily Ann Theater in Wimberley, complete with red carpet, ersatz champagne and popcorn for participants and attendees.

Each movie can run a maximum of seven minutes in length, including credits.

Entries will be accepted in two categories: Those by directors 18 and older, and those by directors 17 and under. Judges are film aficionados from the Wimberley area and from Pearland, Texas.

Directors/producers should come by the library, pick up a set of rules and register in advance of the deadline.

The library is at 400 FM 2325.
