The Snowballs Festivals have been around for 4 years, produced and curated by Tenement Street Workshop. In partnership with Planet Connections, the Snowballs Film Festival has grown into a cross-industry event. We have actors, writers, and directors from theatre to film and everything in-between getting involved. Last year we showed a documentary on a Punk Rock musician filmed on handy-cam from the early 2000′s, a short silent film from a photographer, a 1 minute claymation film, 2 TV Pilots, a music video, and a 20 minute narrative with a burning barn.

Saint Francis! A Wonderful Dude! (Nannette Lipinski)

“Saint Francis, A Wonderful Dude!” is a short comedic film about the patron saint of animals; Saint Francis. Saint Francis was known throughout the centuries as a lover and caretaker all of God’s creatures. He loved them and they loved him right back. Or so we thought. My film introduces you to the real Saint Francis: the Saint Francis only animals and a few random monks knew–a crazy, creepy, I like to touch and be with the furry critters of the world a tad too much Saint Francis. Step inside his world and find out just how freaky he was.
