Hollyshorts Film Festival Red Carpet
Our film production “Agent 6”, the winner of 9 film festival awards was picked up for distribution at the Hollyshorts Film Festival. Shorts International, the largest short film distributor in the world, had a scout at the screening of “Agent 6”. The film was showcased at the Laemmle Sunset 5 theaters in Hollywood California, where it screened to a sold out audience. The production is now being distributed on global iTunes as well as on Shorts TV, a 24 hour film channel.
On opening night of the festival there was a red carpet for filmmakers in front of the Arclight Cinerama Dome across from the Los Angeles Film School. Filmmaker Jason Kent Carpenter was interviewed by Minglemedia TV and other media outlets alongside one of the incredibly talented stars of the film, Katie Wee.

The experience at Hollyshorts was a mixed bag of emotions. During the screening, the projectionist in the booth began to play “Agent 6” from a point in the middle of the film. Luckily our team had a backup blu-ray with us at the time and the film was re-started from the beginning. Although the incident was somewhat embarrassing, it may just have been the reason it caught the attention of the distributor due to projection technicalities causing a bit of a stir.
Overall the festival was a fantastic experience and our team would not have traded it for the world. Thank you Hollyshorts for giving us some great memories to carry with us into the future.
