Short Film Competition  |  Ashfield  |  2008 

Recognizing that digital technology has brought a means to many aspiring filmmakers, the Ashfield Cultural Council established the Ashfield Short Film Competition as a way to include a younger generation in council programs. The contest, dedicated to the legendary filmmaker and Ashfield resident Cecil B. Demille, required that all entries be five minutes or less in length and feature an aspect of the town of Ashfield. A panel of volunteer judges viewed the submissions and winners were chosen. The event culminated in a screening of the films, shown free of charge at Town Hall to an audience of more than 200 residents, including the filmmakers and many of the actors featured in the films. The winners were announced and prizes donated by local business were awarded.
