According to a news release on the movie’s official site, Rosales said, “It is such an honor to have Born to Dance this Way in competition at this year’s Hollyshorts Film Festival. Representing the Filipino-American community, here we go!”
For this year, the HSFF received over 1,000 entries from 20 countries including Australia, Canada, South Africa, South Korea, the UK and US to name a few.
The HSFF will feature screenings of comedies, commercials, trailers, web series, music videos, animated shorts, documentary shorts and more to be judged by major sponsor-companies like Sunny Field Entertainment, Greenhouse Studios, and Grindstone, among others.
The prizes from the sponsors total over $100,000 to be presented to each winner in their respective category.
Twice named by MovieMaker Magazine as one of the “25 Festivals Worth the Entry Fee,” HSFF showcases the best and brightest short films internationally to help push forward the careers of budding film makers with exposure. - VVP, GMA News
