Hi Mom! Film Festival


Friday, September 5, 2008 - 4:00pm to Saturday, September 6, 2008 - 7:00pm


Chapel Hill & Carrboro

Hi Mom! is a free-to-enter, cheap-to-attend volunteer run festival of short films, now in year number 10. We see it as an important and fun contribution to the local vibrant culture. Our outdoor show is co-sponsored by the Town of Chapel Hill, an attempt by them to help utilize the parking deck plaza for events. It may be noted that we are one of the few groups to ever use the space - we've put on an outdoor show there for 5 years now and usually have had crowds of 200 - 350. This is the first year the town has "co-sponsored" that show, they are giving us chairs to use so we don't have to rent them, and I think waiving the fee we normally pay ($75 I think).



Official info:
