The 100-Second Film Festival reboots back to its roots. The festival returns in January 2009 to Lowell, Mass reaffirming its community media roots. Kathleen Pierce wrote an article spotlighting festival in advance of it’s premiere at the 119 Gallery.
Wacky movie transfers from the ’70s, experimental music videos and references from Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver are among them. All Hell Breaks Loose, a humorous submission by Lowell’s Matthew Marchesi about a car getting towed, keeps it quirky.
The event’s strong suit is attracting a slew of amateur videographers from Lowell and Westford, as wel as participants in international film festivals. Because of the ease of technology, artists from all corners of the world have been able to submit videos online.
