The 2nd Annual Walla Walla Movie Crush celebrates the most intoxicating blend of American short cinema over the course of three days (July 6-8). Once again, the festival will showcase narratives, documentaries, animation, music videos and experimental films grouped in themed packages.
Walla Walla Movie Crush will showcase nearly 100 new shorts from Oscar®-winners, household names, rising stars and wunderkinds. Movies will screen in hour-long blocks:
- Friday, July 6 – 6:00-9:00 p.m.
- Saturday, July 7 – noon-5:00 p.m. and 7:00-9:00 p.m.
- Sunday, July 8 – noon-5:00 p.m. and 7:00-9:00 p.m.
The Sunday evening session will feature ten brand-new short films created specifically for the Walla Walla Movie Crush in response to this prompt: Second Thoughts. The “Challenge” screening will be followed immediately by an awards ceremony during which top honors will be bestowed based on the evaluation of a jury of award-winning actors, screenwriters and filmmakers, including: Duncan Jones, Ellen Goosenberg Kent, Alvaro Rodriguez, Jessica Yu, AJ Schnack and Tom Skerritt.
