(**Full disclosure: Not only am I a current consultant and pending host for Couch Fest, but I was a co-director and coordinator for last year’s fest in Seattle. But you should submit your film anyway!)
Former Film Forum box office volunteer and summer workshop instructor Craig Downing has been busy preparing this year’s Couch Fest Films. For starters, Couch Fest Films just announced their call for entries. Submit your film for a chance at almost $2000 in cash prizes and for coveted international bragging rights. For 2011, Couch Fest Films expands their empire of awesome by having host houses from around the globe simultaneously be a part of the festival. Houses already scheduled to be a part of Couch Fest Films on September 24th include Australia, Poland, Guatemala, Colombia, Holland, Iceland and England.
