LYSFF Summer Rewind

Sanford gets short again

“The Wishgranter”

From The Orlando Weekly, August 24, 2017

If the long, hot summer has got you down, get short and cool at the Love Your Shorts Film Festival’s Summer Rewind at the historic Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center in Sanford, Florida, on Friday, August 25. Thirteen short films previously screened at the main festival in February will be shown, with a party and auction to follow at Rabbitfoot Record Store Café just a block away. The movies were selected by festival organizers and represent a variety of genres, though the program is almost half animation thanks to the inclusion of crowd pleasers such as The D in David and Wishgranter, both of which are Florida productions. Dramas include Birthday and Mine while the documentary Cotton Country is a worthy selection. Though the OW’s favorites from February’s festival (Pitter Patter Goes My Heart and Nelly) were left out, there’s enough here to tide short-film lovers over until the main festival rolls around again in six months.
