Amy Emcee’s the 7th annual Hollyshorts Film Festival

Posted by | Amy Paffrath, Appearances, Celebrities, Press, Projects | No Comments

I was honored to take part in last years Hollyshorts Film Festival and I was thrilled to be asked back this year.  It’s always a treat for me to lend my skills to an event like this. Seeing as though I am an actress as well as a host, this was a unique opportunity to bring both of those worlds together. I got to speak eloquently in front of a captive audience of film makers!  Whats not to love?

Hollyshorts is run by a great group of people whom I am proud to call friends and collegues.  They select top notch films by emerging talent as well as some really big names like Jennifer Aniston and Kate Hudson who get a chance to showcase their directing skills.

This year I once again kicked off the night and introduced my buddy Ben Lyons.  I also had the pleasure of introducing Johnny Galecki from the Emmy nominated series “The Big Bang Theory” so that he could accept an award.  He was very gracious, raw and totally cool!  He thanked me for standing up there with him because, as he showed me, his hands were shaking.  “Scarier talking to a room full of filmmakers than performing on Broadway,” he said to me.  I wouldn’t know, but the spotlight has always felt comfortable to me.  Here’s hoping they have me back for a 3rd year!

Amy attends the premier of 30 Minutes or Less

One of my favorite Hollywood perks is being able to see movies before they open. For FREE! Especially when its a film I’m dying to see, like 3o Minutes or Less. First of all, I have a HUGE talent crush on Danny McBride. The man is a deadpan genius. Have you seen Eastbound and Down? Go watch it. NOW. We can resume this conversation when you understand what I’m talking about.

Have you peed your pants from laughing too hard? Gross, but great. Danny is at his best in this film. He has delivery that is unparalleled. I just adore his comedic chops. OK Danny aside, this film also has Aziz Ansari. Parks and Recreation anyone? Man, talk about an amazing actor. Now that I’m officially in love with him, I need to go see his stand up, pronto. He steals every scene he is in in 30 mins. He has a delicate balance of honesty, humor and heart. Amazing perfomance. Then we come to The Social Network’s Jesse Eisenberg. The unlikely hero. Jesse is fantastic too. He is perfectly cast to contrast Aziz’s in your face style. Rounding out the solid cast is Nick Swarsdon. I dont always “get” Nick’s work, but he is a force to be reckoned with who is clearly hitting his stride with this flick.

I absolutely loved the movie. Solid all around. See it on the big screen for sure and do your best to try and forget some of the events that happen in the movie happend in real life. It will depress you beyond belief and this movie is pure comedy god so just go with.
