Grab a spoon. It’s time to chow down on another hearty helping of our nutritious JUMP Society Newsletter!

JUMP Society Winter Film Festival!

First up on the menu is a seasonal favorite, a potluck of short films created by local artists, the JUMP Society Winter Film Festival!

It’s not too late to submit your own concoction for the festival but there’s only one week left to have the garnish on your masterwork so you’d better get something in the oven fast!

Submissions are due on January 26th and submissions guidelines are available here:

The Winter Film Festival will be held in the newly remodeled Silverbow Backroom on February 1st-3rd.

Thursday, February 1st @ 7pm
Friday, February 2nd @ 7pm & 9pm
Saturday, February 3rd @ 7pm & 9pm

Tickets will be available soon… let’s say Thursday. I like Thursdays.

AK Robotics DVD
