Posted June 10, 2014

Justin Hannah's award-winning short film "Consignment" has been chosen as a first-round Official Selection at the 2014 Autumn Shorts Film Festival, taking place September 15-20 in Somerset, Kentucky. The Festival, now in its seventh year, is sponsored by Somerset Community College’s Theatre program, with Professor Steve Cleberg acting as Festival Producer. "Consignment" was selected in the first round of selections from roughly 900 submissions from around the world. Despite being a smaller area festival, this year's program will be truly international in scope, featuring exceptional films from across the United States, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. The multi-day, multi-location event will be free and open to the public. According to Festival Producer Cleberg, "It is our mission to make the wonderful work of filmmakers from around the world easily accessible to our local audience."
