After a blog hiatus, I'm back with a vegeance and ready to get back in the blogging saddle! You can blame my absence on my new husband, as I took some time off to get married a celebrate our honeymoon in Mexico. I'm back, I'm tan and I'm ready to update you on a few things going on around the Bay area.

Two great events kicking off this week - the Sunscreen Film Festival and the Motion Film Festival. Sunscreen runs from April 29 through May 3 and promises to be bigger and better than ever. Motion, the newest festival in the market will take place at Channelside Cinemas on Friday and Saturday evenings. Head to the websites for more information. I'm trying to attend as many events as possible, so hope to see some of you out and about.

I'd be remiss not give a quick shout out to Bay area native and film prodcuer, Will Packer, who's most recent film Obsessed grossed $28.5 million at the box office over the weekend. Congrats Will! 

I'm looking forward to attending the Tampa Bay Video Awards hosted by Tampa Bay Community Network tomorrow night at the University of Tampa. I wasn't able to judge this year's contest, as I have in year's past, but I look forward to seeing this year's submissions. You can expect a full list of winners here tomorrow.

Stay tuned...
