FirstGlance Online Winner Announced!

The winner of the Shorts Online Contest
to be screened at FirstGlance Film Fest 11 Philly on Closing Night is...
The River on Randolph Street

We would like to thank all of the filmmakers who took part in the online event, and we believe you have proven that an online contest in partnership with a real world event can succeed.

Thank you for promoting and getting people excited about this new event we offer to shorts we are unable to program due to physical time constraints. One of the great things about this online event, is that it's open 24/7 to any registrants and we believe in the future that the amount of visibility for the online contest will surely eclipse any size physical venue.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing your next project at a FirstGlance Film Fest!!
