Are you thirsty enough? Thirsty enough to win?

March 24, 2014 | By Anthony Filomena, Columbia College Chicago

Are you thirsty enough? Thirsty enough to win? CA+S MFA  Candidate Robert Forney represents the college as a finalist in the Sprite Films™ competition.  While the grand prize is awarded by industry professionals, the Fan Favorite award is presented to the film that receives the most online votes. Fans based in the United States age 13 and above can vote for their favorite short film every day, up to five times per day, from March 24 to May 15, 2014.

Forney's They Just Weren't Thirsty Enough, short debuted as one of six winning scripts-to-screen adaptation on March 24 at CinemaCon in Las Vegas--the annual gathering of the motion picture theater community--marking the official launch of the online voting for Fan Favorite.

"Just like 'America's Got Talent' or 'American Idol,' it's a chance for people to decide which creative voices they actually want to see and hear in their media saturated world.  If they see our potential and want to get more content from us they have the opportunity to take us to that next level," said Forney.
