“The fast-moving boy in “The Kid With a Bike,” a quietly rapturous film about love and redemption from Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, races along with frightening intensity, his little legs pedaling hard, his eyes fixed on a heart-heavy destination. What the 11-year-old Cyril (the newcomer Thomas Doret, touchingly serious) wants — what every muscle in his small, tensed body strains toward — is the father who left him at a children’s home, abandoning his only son to the kindness of strangers with as seemingly little regard and feeling as someone else might toss a pair of old shoes.

The Shorty Contest is our way of paying homage to the late, great Shorty Yeaworth, Jr., director of The Blob. This year is our 6th annual contest and the films just keep getting better and better! To enter the contest just round up some willing victims, er friends and neighbors, and make a short film that is centered on The Blob, Blobfest, and/or sci-fi in general. Use your imagination and have fun making your very own movie! The winning films in each age group will be shown at the 13th Annual Blobfest at The Colonial Theatre on July 13, 2012. What could be better than watching your own creation come to life on the big screen in a theatre filled with sci-fi / monster movie fans?!?!?! More»
