Re: [48hfp] Benefit Screening of 48 Hour Films From Across the USA
- Yes, I agree it would have been swell to have a film from SFin the line-up, as there were many strong contenders.However, on the bright side, that means the films selectedshould all be EVEN FUNNIER than the best from SF!;-)Here's to watching some amusing flicks for a good cause.Hope to see you there!Note advanced tickets link below. Recommended to avoid lines, asthe ticket booth sells tickets for all movies showing, and itcan get backed up at times.
