What’s cooler than piling into the Silverbow in the middle of winter and watching a bunch of great short films made by your friends and neighbors? I guess a hover bike… but aside from that?

The JUMP Society, a constantly evolving group of ragamuffin filmmakers is pleased to announce the 2005 Winter Film Festival January 27, 28 and 29th. Tickets can be purchased for zero dollars at the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council and at Lucid Reverie. They go fast so get them early!

For those frantically working to finish their films you’ll be pleased to hear that we totally psyched you out on the deadline. The due date is now January 21st so those films should be cut tight with wickedly crisp sound.

Weekend Workshop Feedback
We received some good feedback from the weekend workshop and will probably be hosting another in the spring. I’d also like to start having more opportunity for internal review and feedback so how about we get the filmmakers together in February and we can go through and do another feedback session after the festival?

Internal Action
Lou is busting hump putting together some new features for the JUMP website that will hopefully facilitate better communication for all ya’ll. We’re also inching towards official non-profit status… Patricia has done a great job and I’m pretty sure I’m the one holding it up at this point :)

Best wishes for the New Year, may we never have to listen to that damnable “Drops of Jupiter” again.
