Now here's an interesting development: Winter Garden's Garden Theatre, under the leadership of Enzian's former GM Chris Blanc, has just announced their first annual "Micro-Budget Film Festival," in which 12-20 feature-length films with a budget of $100k or less will be shown on Feb. 2-5, 2012.
This is a terrific idea for many reasons, not the least of which is that the nominees must be full-length narrative films – in other words, no shorts or docs. That narrows the field considerably and allows for the possibility that the next Blair Witch, Clerks or El Mariachi could be among the bunch.
