CRABCAKES: Annapolis Film Festival | The Shorts Challengers (March 2018)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs!  What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20.  In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

This year, the Annapolis Film Festival has a “Shorts Challenge” which will happen at Maryland Hall on Saturday the 24th at 10am. It is somewhat American Idol-esque in that there are filmmakers who have competed to be on the stage and to be judged by a panel of experts!

The catch–the audience gets to vote too.

Listen to 6 filmmakers pitch their idea for a short film and the best one will be awarded a fantastic production and post-production package and a slot in the 2019 Annapolis Film Festival.

We spoke to three of filmmakers who have made it to the final round. First up–Jessica Jacklin

WOMAN – JESSICA JACKLIN

Jessica is a Maryland native living in Brooklyn with a somewhat autobiographical film about a woman suffering from endometriosis. The film “Woman” takes you through the highs and the lows of reproductive health and allows her to inject her own experiences as well.

In addition, we talk about what winning will mean to her, and also about another short she has that will also be showing at the festival!

Next up, Annalise Lamberty

SUMMER FRUIT – ANNALISE LAMBERTY

Annalise is a transplanted Minneapolean (made that up) living in LA finishing up film school. Her film, “Summer Fruit” is the story of a young couple trying to make ends meet while dealing with a cancer diagnosis and how to save money, they tackled the very intimate act of cutting her hair rather than risking what treatment might do.

In addition, we talk about what winning will mean to her and her upcoming visit to Annapolis.

Next up is Lindsey Corriveau

WHAT HAPPENED TO LILLY – LINDSEY CORRIVEAU

Annalise is a local filmmaker based in Severna Park and knows Annapolis well.  “What Happened to Lilly” is the story of human trafficking and child prostitution in the US which is a tremendous issue. With this film, Lindsey hopes to bring light to the issue without necessarily relying on shock to do it.

In addition, we talk about what winning will mean to her, and also about another short she too, has that will also be showing at the festival!
