Mito Short Film Festival 2011.9.30 Elysse Hurtado
Last weekend was the Mito Short Film Festival, and the beginning of fall.
While spending hours indoors sitting down in a dark room was a little bit
harder on me than I had envisioned, getting to see some inspiring works by
up and coming directors in the country was worth the hardship. From
documentaries on fascinating jazz musicians to treatises on the dominance of
the survival instinct in children, each piece had something interesting and
unique to offer, and was a welcome source of ideas for my own creative
process. Meanwhile, outside the falling leaves are beginning to match the
glorious colors of the sunsets, and the air has a wonderfully crisp quality
that tickles the senses. Now that we are entering my second favorite season
of the year, the extremes of the summer seem also to be reduced along with
the temperatures. Time to prepare for what is to come.
