The jury had their work cut out for them, but the final decisions have been made and 19 submissions made the final selection for the 2007 program. I think you’re really going to enjoy this dynamic selection of movies. But don’t get too excited! You’ve got to wait until April 13th, which is still a month away. Check out the program here.

I hope this isn’t out of line of me, but I want to offer it as some constructive criticism for the film-makers. Please take it as a little friendly advice for FBB 2008.
One, maybe two excepted, ALL the submissions longer than five minutes could have stood for more editing.
If you submitted a longish movie that didn’t make the show, very likely it could have made the show if it were shorter. A number of movies we started out liking well enough, but they ended up being too long and repetitive. Many 6-8 minute submissions would have made the show if they were cut down to 4-5 minutes. Plus, a longer submission makes it doubly hard on itself because choosing it necessarily precludes choosing two other shorter films.
I wish everyone well, and here’s to an excellent FBB 2007.
Hi Jury Member,
I completely agree with you. Last year, some of the movies were really short and fun and I loved that about the festival. I’m hoping to see more of that this year. Will there be?
