]Sister Bay is host to the Short Film Fest on February 16th and 17th with over 20 short films to enjoy. The Fest which is in its 9th year is held at the Sister Bay Village Hall sponsored by the Sister Bay Advancement Association. The premiere on Friday night includes two local short films followed by a feature short film, Through the Windmill, a documentary on mini-golf. The festival continues on Saturday on a variety of short films throughout the day for a minimal entrance fee. The films are juried with a prize for best film, The Golden Mug, which is being created by a local artist. Louise Howson, Coordinator of the Sister Bay Advancement Association, says that the films cover a number of different topics but the two local short films are unique.
The films chosen for this year’s event were submitted via the web from dozens of filmmakers from all over the world. Some of the filmmakers will be in attendance to give presentations and answer questions. A concession of food and drink as well as free popcorn will be provided.
