Welcome (back) to Flicker. Since this is the Christmas/Hanunkah/Kwanzaa Flicker and since we didn't have one for Thanksgiving, I thought I'd take the time to thank all the swell people who make Flicker happen. (I'm also feeling at a loss for opening remarks, so this'll do.)
Frank Heath is number one on my holiday shopping list. He's been really great about accommodating us here in the Cradle. I think if I told him that we wanted to do another Flicker tomorrow he'd probably set it up.
Mary Crews from catalogue.com is also high up on the gift list. She maintains the Flicker site out at http://www.flickerfestival.com/flicker & has even taken the time to share some of her HTML savvy to doll up the pages I made myself for Flicker.
Julie Shapiro does a great job covering Chapel Hill with Flicker flyers & also is a stalwart over at the merch window. (Go give her a big wet kiss & pick up some Flicker gear while yr there. Flicker tapes make great stocking stuffers. And they're also fun to watch.)
James Parrish is working wonders up in Richmond, drawing in huge crowds to his fledgling fest, and shares the wealth. He's already giving out grants up there & has been since his 2nd or 3rd show. He's also sent us along some awesome films (remember "Puberty" from the last Flicker) & has sent another one tonight. He's also responsible for getting us the lovely "centerfold" to this guide, penned by Jonas Mekas.
Norwood Cheek started this thing & we're still using his equipment. Without him none of this would exist. He may even be responsible for there being local films for us to screen here in the first place. (I'm still checking on that.)
And finally, I want to mention Joyce Ventimiglia--not because she's done any administrative duty for Flicker, but because I forgot to congratulate her in the last program guide on winning Flicker film grant #13. Sorry for the oversight. We still love you, Joyce. (While I'm at it, I better not forget Chad Benton who wowed the crowd with "Laundry" & walked away with Flicker film grant #14.)
Anyway, that should be plenty of shopping to do. Now I've just got to get down to the mall.
Happy/Merry __(your holiday
Flicker Film Grant
Flicker Film Grant #15 went to Kendra Gaeta who will, no doubt, soon grace us with the fruits of this grant. (For those scoring at home, that's $1500 that we've given away now. We're closing in on the NEA...)
