Walla Walla Movie Crush (festival of short films) July 10

The 4th Annual Walla Walla Movie Crush festival of short films celebrates the most intoxicating blend of American short cinema over the course of three days in July at Gesa Power House Theatre.

In 2020, the Walla Walla Movie Crush will showcase more than 100 new shorts from Oscar®-winners, household names, rising stars and wunderkinds. Once again, the festival will showcase narratives, documentaries, animation, music videos and experimental films grouped in themed packages.

Friday, July 10: 6-10PM
Saturday, July 11: 11AM-5PM and 7-10PM
Sunday, July 12: 12-5PM and 7-10PM

The Sunday Noon session will feature ten brand-new short films created specifically for the Walla Walla Movie Crush. These “Challenge” films will be created by a pantheon of talents.

On Sunday evening, the festival will conclude with a Closing Night Ceremony, featuring the announcement of our annual awards — bestowed in accordance with the wishes of a jury of award-winning actors, screenwriters and filmmakers — and the launch of The Short Order. The Short Order is a virtual Hall of Fame for makers of short-form content. The recipient will be honored with a tribute screening and knighting ceremony.

In June 2020, the full Crush line-up will be revealed at: themoviecrush.com. Sign up for Crushworthy, the official (mostly monthly) e-newsletter of The Walla Walla Movie Crush.
