Last week Jeff served as a volunteer usher for the tenth annual Charlotte Film Festival. The five-day event included screening of 18 feature films and about 60 short films submitted by independent producers from Japan, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom, France, and Poland, but mostly from the USA. Accepted submissions to the festival included narratives as well as documentaries plus one or two animations. Eleven of the shorts were student films. All works were screened in one of three Ayrsley Grand Cinema theaters, located near I-485 and South Tryon Street.
