The 5th Annual Walla Walla Movie Crush celebrates the most intoxicating blend of American short cinema over the course of three days in July at Gesa Power House Theatre. Once again, the festival will showcase narratives, documentaries, animation, music videos and experimental films grouped in hour-long themed packages, with more than 100 new shorts from Oscar®-winners, household names, rising stars and wunderkinds.
- Friday, July 9: 6-10PM
- Saturday, July 10: 11AM-5PM, 7-10PM
- Sunday, July 11: 12-5PM, 7-10PM
The Sunday Noon session will feature ten brand-new short films created specifically for the Walla Walla Movie Crush. These “Challenge” films will be created by a pantheon of talents.
On Sunday evening, the Movie Crush Closing Night Ceremony will feature the announcement of our annual awards — bestowed in accordance with the wishes of a jury of award-winning actors, screenwriters and filmmakers — and launch of The Short Order. The Short Order is a virtual Hall of Fame for makers of short-form content. The recipient will be honored with a tribute screening and knighting ceremony.
In June 2021, the full Crush line-up will be revealed at: themoviecrush.com. Sign up on the Movie Crush website for Crushworthy, the official (mostly monthly) e-newsletter of The Walla Walla Movie Crush.
