World Renowned FILM CRITIC JOHN MOORE'S job moderating this month's WILDsound Film Festival was terrific. He explained his critique methods in his opening remarks and then was able to bring out the best with the audience.

One of the underlying themes for this month's event was the CONNECTION! Connection of human nature and connection of human beings. All the films presented were unique in their own way and all very successful films. We had an assortment of films from almost every corner of the globe: Canada, Australia, Germany, Italy and Hungary!

The comments that keep coming back from the audiences throughout the first year this festival about short film-making in general are two main points that most of the films screened didn't do, which was why they were selected:

1) There should never be a lapse moment in a short film. Every second counts. And usually a main problem with many shorts is that they are too long and they need to be edited down. There's a lot of greatness in many shorts but there is too much dullness in between the magic. People seem to be either too close to their material or have a hard time cutting their baby.

2) Many short films have too many themes going on and/or the theme is too large for the short film medium. The cliche line of 'Keep it simple stupid' should be reminded when people try to tell grand epics. The more simple the story, the more grand your message comes across. Entertain the audience first and then your theme will be present.
