Crossroads and Mendocino Film Festivals Select Zoom Suit
March 27, 2006, Palm Beach, FL – John Taddeo’s award-winning animated short film, Zoom Suit, has been selected to screen at two more major film festivals, the Crossroads Film Festival in Jackson, Mississippi and the Mendocino Film Festival in Mendocino, California.
“Both of these are great festivals and I’m thrilled they’ve selected Zoom Suit to be a part of their events,” said Taddeo. “The Zoom Suit animated short continues its success at festivals like the little train that could.”
The Seventh Annual Crossroads Film Festival allows film fans the opportunity to meet many of the filmmakers and discuss the filmmaking process as well as participate in a free screenwriting workshop offered on Saturday. Even the youngest fans will get a chance to learn about the filmmaking process through scheduled events on Saturday at the Museum of Art in downtown Jackson. The festival is being held March 30 to April 2 with Zoom Suit being screened on April 1. For more information, log onto: www.crossroadsfilmsociety.com.
