Gary Giver visits on Loveland Beacon Talks to share details of what has happened, is happening now, and will happen during the inaugural Loveland Shorts Film Festival Fri-Sun, August 2-4, 2024 at the LSC theater here in Loveland, OH.

Wow! There are so many new things happening at the Loveland Stage Company Theater. Just last Saturday, April 6th, the second show in a new music series playing on the LSC stage took place. The show was just shy of a sellout but exceeded all expectations for music and fun for the performers and the audience alike. Coming up fast is the “Red Velvet Cake Wars” cabaret style show and performers from the stage company partnered with the NEST organization for a Murder Mystery Dinner fundraiser on this Friday, April 12, 2024. 

It goes without saying the season is set for drama and musicals in live stage theater spring, summer and fall, not to mention the upcoming summer children’s theater production. Whew, take a breath because that is not all. August will bring the first ever film festival to Loveland, Ohio.

The Loveland Shorts Film Festival (LSFF) is set for Friday-Sunday, August 2-4, 2024. Gary Giver is a member of the LSC board and the driving force as well as official chairperson for this exciting new entertainment event. It’s already been over a year since work began for the quickly formed LSFF committee. Things are happening fast. There is an official launch party coming up to help raise funds to support this event. There will be some special guests and opportunity to bid on great prizes. Film submissions opened March 1st and filmmakers have been submitting short films (20 minutes or less in length) for the festival viewings.

The film festival will include a variety of categories including “Sweetheart Film” honoring Loveland – The Sweetheart of Ohio. You can join in as a sponsor. You can plan to be there to view the films and join in after-party, special events all during the film festival weekend and awards presentation. There is so much more and Gary Giver shares details during his visit with us on Loveland Beacon Talks.
