We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again: the Big Sur International Short Film Festival is the largest jewel in the Henry Miller Memorial Library’s glittering tiara of the arts.
Maybe it’s a ruby. They’re nice. Ooooh, no, an emerald. So calming. Either way, it’s the kind of jewel you’d find in a place like India.
But when Sunday arrives, this analogy totally explodes. Sunday is the grand finale of our 2012 film series (great article in Monterey County Weekly here.) And for this year’s series, we got over 1,000 submissions this year. We chose the best 50.
And now our esteemed jury, comprised of Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, Kirsten Dunst, and others, choose the best of the best.
The brightest ruby of them all. The most amazing opal the world has even known (this year.) The kind of sapphire that makes holy men weep and the bravest kings fools.
So you see how the whole jewel thing can get cumbersome by this point?
Bottom line: come to the Library on Sunday at 7 pm. There’ll be chocolates, drinks, and, yes, popcorn. And starting at 8ish, we screen the creme de la creme*. More info here. It is not to be missed and your donations are appreciated!
See you then!
* Perhaps next year we’ll abandon the jewel stuff and employ a more dairy-centric analogy
