Couch Fest, the film festival that takes place in people’s living rooms and related alternative venues is now accepting applications for Couch Fest 2012.
That means you can host your very own short film program in the comfort of your own home. All you need is a DVD and Television or screen and preferably a couch or somewhere for people to sit. Some of you may remember this film festival from the interviews that I did with Craig Downing.
The crew at Couch Fest says you can host their program of short films “at home, at work, with a community organization, at school, on a pirate boat, in a tree house, at your local theater, in a cave, as a flash mob, or wherever!” -- the festival showcases unreleased and award-winning films that come straight from the current film festival circuit from fests such as Sundance, Seattle, SXSW and Melbourne.
Celebrating its fifth year, Couch Fest Films is proud of bringing movies to people in a local and cozy atmosphere -- so proud that the festival staff say they will “get into a dirty school-yard fight” to defend every film that is accepted that you dare to bad mouth!
Last year, Couch Fest Films had hosts around the country and beyond in places such as Oman, California, Peru, Iceland, New York, London and Haiti.

Now, tell me…
What was the last short film that YOU watched? and What was the last film festival YOU attended?
