The Kudzu Film Festival, which will run from Oct. 18th through the 22nd in Athens, Georgia, is seeking submissions for its 2000 event. Application forms are available at [ www.prometheus-x.com ] or by calling [ 706-227-6090 ] . At last year’s event, awards were presented by the judges (Gill Holland, Debbie Zimmerman, Alison Bourke, Dr. Richard Neupert and Stratton Leopold) for the following categories: Best Feature, Best Short, Best Animation, and The Seattle Post Affiliates Award for Achievement in 16mm Filmmaking. The Audience Choice Award will be back for 2000, along with a student category and The Turner South Award, which will be presented to a short film (15 minutes or less) which best celebrates “the South” in its theme and tone or tells the most original story about the South.
