This is the view from the open air tech booth at the back of the hall for this year's Punta Gorda show, which takes place every March on the southwest coast of Florida in Charlotte Harbor County.
This was Asbury Shorts USA's 5th year partnering with The Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce to present the world's best short films...on a Wednesday night! 910 attendees! 2nd year in a row there were 900 or more in the room!!
It's not only a large audience every year but they are so incredibly appreciative of the work of the filmmakers whose shorts are in the show. When Doug took the bow for the filmmakers just before the Encore film... as he does all the time...3/4's of the audience gave them a standing ovation!! Outstanding fun night!
