Final warning, kids: Josiah Film Fest entries due


Filmmakers under 21 take note: If I show up in any of your movies, I'm totally telling the cops you lied about your age. Also, get your entries for Urban-15's Josiah Youth Media Festival in the mail right this instant, young man/lady/man-lady, or you'll be sorry.

The final date you can drop your masterwork in the mail is Tuesday, June 1. Anything postmarked afterward is just a goshdarn shame. Read the rules below and go to the Urban-15 site for further info. Once you're accepted (or even if you're not, I'm not here to judge, just to mercilessly critique) send us a copy, too, at or
