Quarantine Filmmaking Competition Showcase

Over the last 7 days CinemaSlice has received over 30 films entries for the #QuarantineFilmmaking competition.

We’re truly humbled to have encouraged so many filmmakers to be creative and make a short film over the course of a week.

On Friday, March 27th, 2020 at 8PM EDT, CinemaSlice has the honor of showcasing all film submissions via live-stream watch party at the official FB event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/229348808259773/

You don’t want to miss this showcase of short indy films from around the world! Our official awards will be handed out to the winning films immediately following the live-stream watch party!

Suds – CANCELLED

It is with heavy hearts that CinemaSlice must announce that we’re canceling SUDS & CINEMA – Knoxville.

After discussing the topic with our festival team, we’ve decided that we’d prefer not risk holding a film showcase during these uncertain times. As a matter of fact, the awesome pub (BRICKYARD) is currently mandated to be CLOSED. As of NOW they’re scheduled to re-open before the SUDS & CINEMA event date in August 2020– but details seem to be changing each day.

All thing considered, we’ve selected to follow the president, the governor, and the CDC to cancel our event at this time.

We very much intend on re-scheduling our event after this whole thing blows over…

Stay safe during these challenging times.
