JUMP Society Summer Film Festival & 10th Anniversary!

This summer marks the 10th anniversary of the Juneau Underground Motion Picture Society. Huzzah!

Gold Town Nickelodeon
Thursday, August 2 at 7pm
Friday, August 3 at 7pm & 9pm
Saturday, August 4 at 7pm & 9pm
Sunday, August 5 at 4pm

Tickets are free and are available at The Alaska Robotics Gallery (523-0303) and is open from 11-7 pm and on Sunday 12-6 pm.

The submissions deadline is Thursday, July 26th and we’re expecting a truck load so remember to keep them short. The limit for each film is ten minutes but we recommend 3-5 minutes as the sweet spot.

Remember, at the JUMP Society, quality comes second! As always, our priority will be on inclusion and getting as many filmmakers on screen as possible because we believe that screening films for an audience is a valuable learning experience. If you make great films, the kind that make us laugh and cry and vomit uncontrollably (maybe not vomit) then of course we’ll include as much of your work as possible but we also want to give that weird experimental film a chance because building the community is at the core of this festival.

If you have a film that doesn’t fit into our ten minute limit, please bring it by and talk to us anyway, we’re here to support local filmmaking and may try developing a separate program for longer films in the future.

You can drop off films at The Alaska Robotics Gallery and if anyone wants feedback on work in progress, I’d be happy to sit down with you and give you as much constructive criticism as you can bear. To schedule an appointment, call 586-3440.
