That’s right. Dave Laden’s short film “First Impressions” is an official selection at this year’s 9th annual Hollyshorts Film Festival. Major congratulations are in order to Dave and his wonderful cast and crew for creating a wholly unique peice of filmic art.

And, for those of you who are unfamiliar with the Hollyshorts film festival, past winners include Grainger David for his film The Chair and Bryan Buckley’s Academy Award Nominated short Asad.

In short — pun intended — this is a big deal.
