Four minute film festival debuts Friday

LAKEPORT – This Friday, the community is invited to come and enjoy the premiere of the inaugural “We Love the Tules Four Minute Film Festival.”

The Lake County Arts Council and Main Street Gallery, at 325 N. Main Street in Lakeport, is hosting the reception ceremony on Friday, March 12, to celebrate the creativity of the community.

Seven films were entered and each will be given its own reward, said Cheri Holden, creator of the festival and owner of Watershed Books.

“There were a wide variety of participants,” said Holden. “All of the films are worthy of an award. We had participants from age 13 to age 70, both amateurs and professionals.”

The festivities begin at 7 p.m. and will most likely last until about 9 p.m., she reported.

In addition to the films entered into the contest, several others also will be shown that are related to Clear Lake, Holden said.

“I’m keeping the films secret until the premiere, so I can’t give you any idea of what they are like,” said Holden.

The criteria for the entries was that the star of the movie be Clear Lake itself, that it be appropriate for all ages and be between two and four minutes in length, as Lake County News has reported.

To attend the award ceremony – complete with snacks and drinks - guests must RSVP.

Call or visit Watershed Books, which is located at 305 N. Main St. in Lakeport, 707-263-5787, or email Holden at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

So far, almost 30 people have confirmed that they will attend, so space is running out, Holden said.
