Short Film Version of "Cupid and Eros" an Official Selection of the 2011 Valley Film Festival

"Raymond Carver Moments" played the Valley Film Festival not long after I moved to L.A.

It was a great experience, and the first fest I'd been a part of since "Ocean City" wrapped it's fest run.  So it's very exciting that I get to do it again this year with the short film version of C&E.

What's even more exciting, is that we'll be playing as part of a shorts program devoted to VFF alums, including my dear friend Ashley Cozine.  Ashley, a fellow Tisch Grad is a talented Actress and Producer, and actually had a hand in the formative stages of C&E.  The script for the original short was first read during a writer's group she organized, and later, it was Ashley who tipped me off about the NYU WEB SERIES SHOWCASE.

Ashley will be at the fest with her film "Desert and Suicide", a dark comedy about blind dates.  You can watch the trailer here.

The 2011 VFF will run from 11.11.11 through 11.13.11, with all screenings taking place at the Whitefire Theater in Sherman Oaks, CA.

THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF CUPID AND EROS will be screening at 7:00 pm on 11.11.11.  Info and tickets here.
