A kiss from me to you! A friend and colleague of mine invited me to take part in the opening night festivities for the 6th Annual Hollyshorts Film Festival. Of course I said yes as I am a big fan and supporter of Independent films. Any opportunity to meet film makers and hear about how their projects came to fruition is an event I don’t want to pass up. I even got to interview film legend James Caan about his involvement with the festival.  His company Open Films was a sponsor this year.

Before the screening got underway, I had the honor of introducing my fellow Daily 10 correspondent and resident movie buff, Ben Lyons who served as host for the night.

It was a spectacular night full of fabulous film making. We were treated to short cinematic endeavors featuring A-list talent like Will Ferrell, Don Cheadle, Zoe Saldana, Kate Bosworth, David Arquette and Mena Suvari among others.

A few of my favorites included Hostage: A Love Story. As you can deduce from the title, its a zany comedy starring Zachary Quinto. I laughed so hard, it actually warmed my body in that frigid theater! Another great film was part of a series on Funny or Die, called Drunk History. Hilarious stuff.  I have to mention Ollie Klublershturf vs. The Nazis’ as it was a fantastic movie starring pint sized actor Zach Mills as the unlikely smart ass hero . Be on the look out for these and other wonderful flicks featured at Hollyshorts!

I hope to be back next year to check out another crop of creative clips from emerging talented filmmakers!
Enjoy photos from the red carpet as well as a close up of my awesome clutch featuring our Nations First Lady, Michelle Obama, on the cover of Vogue Magazine. Until next time, smile!! xoxo
