Johnstown isn't so far from Pittsburgh, and each year the Johnstown Film Festival goes down in the summer. This year, the festival takes place Sep. 5-7, a little later than in the past. The JFF is calling for film submissions now: The deadline for entry is May 1.
The call is for short films — up to 30 minutes — and the entry fee is $10 per film. For more info on submitting, visit the JFF website.
Also of interest in the Johnstown category, and the film category: Johnstown's Heritage Discovery Center currently features "Cinema Judaica: The War Years, 1939-1949." The exhibit looks at Jewish film during and immediately after World War II. And next Thursday, March 7, the Johnstown Flood Museum will feature a screening of Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator.
