No Small Potatoes for Spudfest Film Festival

Attendees asked to bring Tall ’Taters to IFTI for Open House and Screening.

Driggs, ID, July 21, 2006 --( The Spudfest Drive-In Family Film and Music Festival is waiving its admission fee to the Saturday, July 29 Open House at the Idaho Film & Television Institute and screenings at 10:00 AM to anyone who brings a large potato. Attendees will be given tours of the Institute and will have the opportunity to see short films made by IFTI students. All potatoes presented for admission will be given to a local food bank as part of the “No Small Potatoes” promotion.”

“In just three years, we have the film festival running twice a year in Rexburg, Pocatello, Idaho Falls and Driggs,” commented Dawn Wells, “while IFTI is offering college credit for its boot camp courses and we’re well on our way to being a full-fledged fast track film school. We think our accomplishments are no small potatoes, and we wanted to invite our friends and neighbors to see just how the hard work is paying off.”

The Idaho Film & Television Institute is located at 160 North Highway 33 in Driggs, Idaho. The Spudfest Drive-In Family Film & Music Festival honors the best in independent family films and as a fundraiser for the Idaho Film & Television Institute, a fully accredited technical college. Spudfest is held twice each year and features screenings across Eastern Idaho, including Rexburg, Idaho Falls, Pocatello and Driggs. The next leg of the festival, July 28 & 29th, will be highlighted by the U.S. premiere of “Lassie,” screenings of “Queen of the Gypsies,” and “The Broken Wings of Elijah Footfalls,” as well as a concert by Jimmy Bivens and a Spud-tacular Awards Ceremony.
