What’s the power of 100 words? Find out at this unique Charlotte film festival


On this week’s CharlotteFive Podcast, we talked to the organizers of the 100 Words Film Festival. Each film in the festival must be exactly 100 words, so I’m going to try to keep this intro to exactly 100 words. I’ve already used 39. Dammit. OK.

Scott Galloway started the festival in 2014 to celebrate concise storytelling. Filmmakers from Charlotte and around the world enter — from documentaries to dramas to comedies. Galloway, and coordinator Jordan Snyder said the word limit forces filmmakers to get creative and make every word matter.

The third edition of the festival is Nov. 4-5 at McGlohon Theatre. Buy tickets here.

Nailed it.

OK, a few more words. Also on this week’s podcast, we talked about Secret Charlotte — stories about Charlotte history that you may have never heard before, including the Heritage USA and Lakewood amusement parks, and what’s under Lake Norman.
