    I was fortunate enough to be a part of the February "Night of Local Short Films & Videos" at Forest City Brewery, held by Emerge Microcinema, with my short film "Twenty Dollar Limit". It was a great venue, with a comfortable, relaxed environment. The screening was well organized, their communication leading up to the event was great, and they really made the filmmakers feel welcome. I definitely plan to submit to Emerge in the future.
