Ticket sales for this year’s Reel Shorts Film Festival are ahead of the pace set last year. The schedule for this year’s festival, which goes May 7-11, has been released, with 101 short films divided into 16 packages. Director Terry Scerbak says they have already moved a couple of their screenings due to huge interest.
“We have had to move the school packages, there are five of them, and Psycho shorts, to the Jan Cinema, because we have out grown Grande Prairie Live Theatre for those screenings. We already have 300 grade 1-3 kids booked for our first screening of that package.”
Scerbak says while moving screenings provides logistical challenges, it is a good problem to have. She says a downtown performing and media arts centre, which has been discussed for several years, would be an ideal new home for the festival in the future.
