LYSFF Summer Rewind 2019

From The Orlando Weekly, August 20, 2019

“Don’t want no short people,” Randy Newman sang. In Sanford, that sentiment certainly doesn’t extend to short films, which are again in demand as the town celebrates the Love Your Shorts Film Festival Summer Rewind. Held at the historic Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center, the program will include 10 films selected from among the best of the ninth annual festival, which took place in February. Every festival genre will be featured – drama, comedy, sci-fi/horror, animation, documentary and “E for Everyone” – with almost half the movies made by Florida filmmakers. Among those Sunshine State selections are Marcus by Fort Lauderdale’s J.R. Poli (the winner of the February festival), Time Was by Orlando’s John VonMutius, Rebooted by Sarasota’s Sagar Arun and Rachel Kral, and Game Changer by Sarasota’s Aviv Mano. It’s a refreshing palate cleanser in advance of September’s Central Florida Film Festival (CenFlo) and Global Peace Film Festival.

8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23 | Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center, 201 S. Magnolia Ave., Sanford | | $8
