815HORTS - A LOCAL SHORT FILM SHOWCASE
Built to amplify the Rockford region’s creative and filmmaking community, the inaugural 815HORTS, presented by the City of Rockford + Rockford Film Office, celebrated the fine art of short film cinematography by showcasing locally produced shorts. 815HORTS also featured music, food and beverages as well as a screening of the 2022 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour.
Nearly 250 people attended the program, which yielded a donation to the Rockford Public Library Foundation. In addition, seven locally-produced short films were screened as part of 815HORTS before seven Sundance Shorts were featured.
