Event Details

In 2012, the Big Sur International Short Film Screening Series received over 800 submissions from over 70 countries.  We narrowed the field down to the best 50-or-so films and screened them across the summer.

Then the jury had their say.

That's right: our incredible jury, consisting of Philip Glass, Kirsten Dunst, Laurie Anderson, Mark and Michael Polish, Susan Littenberg, Lawrence Inglee, and Vilmost Zsigmond chose "the best of the best." (More on our jury below!)

Come to the Henry Miller Library and check out the winners from the 2012 series!


The Big Sur International Short Film Screening Series Jury


Philip Glass

One of the most innovative and creative artists of the 20th century, Philip has received three Academy Award nominations for his film scores and has performed at the Henry Miller Memorial Library in 2008 for our annual benefit concert, and twice in 2011, including a performance of his score for the 1931 Bela Lugosi film “Dracula” as part of his 2011 Days and Nights Festival.

 

Laurie Anderson

Experimental artist, composer, and musician, Laurie is also a dear friend of the Henry Miller Memorial Library, having played our annual benefit concert in 2005. Laurie is a pioneer in electronic music and has invented several devices that she has used in her recordings and performance art shows.

Mark and Michael Polish

The Polish Brothers are two of the most creative and resourceful filmmakers in independent cinema today. Their latest effort is “For Lovers Only,” a “no-budget,” black-and-white indie romance made using their own camera and equipment and no lighting lights or extraneous crew.

 

Susan Littenberg

A prolific American film editor who has worked with Stephen Soderbergh, Jim Jarmush, Hal Hartley, and Ang Lee, Littenberg was nominated for Best Edited Feature Film – Comedy or Musical for “Easy A” at the 2010 American Cinema Editors Awards.
