  2. Hi Kierstin, it’s Jim Courson from Open Bard.
    I’m helping to organize the 5th annual Ridgway Independent Film Festival.
    This year we are asking for film submissions to be “shorts”, 20 minutes OR LESS. No specific genre, just interesting, engaging films.
    Would you be willing to send me your email address so I can forward you more information?
    I’m hoping you would be willing to take a few minutes and forward our “flyer/call to filmmakers” to people you know who may be interested in submitting a film.
    Thanks and I hope you are having a great summer!!!
