It's the seventh annual festival. Every year, they send me a sample of what I assume is the best of show. Two great animated shorts are my favorites.
One involves an accident and cheating death. The second is a bunny bullied by other animals.
A live-action short that I loved is one about a lovesick chess-playing kid who can stop time. That's about it. This year's reel isn't up to the quality of the short films from years past. Hopefully, the others on the schedule that I didn't see are better.
The festival venues will be in Richland:
-- Sept. 27-28 and Oct. 3-5 at Academy of Children's Theatre, 213 Wellsian Way.
-- Oct. 4: Richland Community Center, 500 Amon Park Drive.
-- Oct. 5: Richland Public Library, 955 Northgate Drive.
