Second Annual “Filmette Film Festival” Lineup Announced (see further down)

Harvestworks festival for films running 30 to 60 minutes will screen

12 films from around the world on Dec. 2 and 3 2017

Filmette was created as a showcase for movies that have historically struggled to find an audience and distribution simply because of their unconventional running time. Too long for traditional shorts programs and too short for a more conventional theatrical release, these mid-length films (30 to 60 minutes) struck the festival’s four co-founders -- Gisburg, Molly Gross, Loui Terrier and Drew Pisarra -- as being no less deserving of attention and a larger audience.

As Gisburg puts it: “I've been working for years now in film and in that time I’ve met many filmmakers who have given their whole heart (and their own money) to films that didn’t fit into traditional platforms because they were either too short or too long. I thought, this is ridiculous.”

Tickets are $5 per program and can be purchased at the door or online at
