[From Rick Dumont at NH-based Sweaty Turtle Entertainment.]

“Like Life, But Shorter” Indie Film Series
May 28 at The Jam Factory 1211 Elm St. Manchester

Celebrate Memorial Day weekend at The Jam Factory in Manchester with an evening filled with lurid sex, drama, intrigue and laughs!

This month’s installment of the indie film series features several short films by NH, Boston and New Jersey filmmakers that are certain to entertain.

A short film can run anywhere from just a few minutes to about 30, and we have a variety of those to present by these very talented filmmakers and their casts and crew.

The Exeter based comedy troupe, Darwin’s Waiting Room will be on hand to introduce and discuss their madcapped meaty productions.

The 40 plus member group have been creating together for 3 years and was the brainchild of Eric Doucet and Kaitilyn Huwe.

Boston’s John K. Fiore, of Story Street Productions brings his two lurid and quirky dramas and New Jersey filmmaker Jeremy Newman will be presenting his thought provoking short film as well.

Fiore is a published author and screenwriter and also the producer of the “Show Us Your Shorts” independent film festival staged in Boston. He is currently at work on his next feature film.

Newman is an Assistant Professor of Communications at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and has had his artistic conceptual short films, air on PBS and at film festivals worldwide.

Rick Dumont and his Sweaty Turtle Entertainment colleagues continue to schedule the finest in independent films from across the country and the globe to the silver screen the last Saturday of each month at The Jam Factory.

Drinks are available at Raxx Billiards, which shares the building with The Jam. Additionally there will be a concession stand for popcorn and other typical movie fare.

An as an added bonus to there will be a couple of artists on hand showing and offering their creations for sale during the intermissions and living statue models will give everyone something to talk about.

“There is nothing like this in New Hampshire,” Dumont said. “I think anyone who enjoys a good movie, at a reasonable cost, will enjoy the atmosphere and the films we have lined up to present to them each month.”
