The 2021 Elgin Short Film Festival was a success thanks to you and our filmmakers.
Congratulations to the 2021 Film Festival Winners:
1st Place - Clarence of Tomorrow Shawn Spear Director
2nd Place - The Ephemeral Orphanage Lisa Barcy Director
3rd Place - The Peach Scarf Del Sego Director
This was our first virtual and in-theatre experience, which means some attendees watched the show here at The Hemmens while others were able to watch the Festival from their own home! We have had many positive reviews and will offer the virtual viewing option in 2022 as well.
Chamber Music on the Fox performed live as they accompanied the screening of the 1910 film "Wilful Peggy" starring Mary Pickford and entertainers were on hand for the Red Carpet Ceremony.
