    EGYPTIAN THEATRE – Manhattan Short Film Festival 2022

    09/22/2022

    Read More
    Film lovers in Coos Bay, OR will join over 100,000 film enthusiasts around the world during the week of Sept 22 - Oct 2 when the 25th Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival screens at the Egyptian Theatre on Friday, September 23rd at 7 PM, Saturday, September 24th at 7 PM, Friday September 30th at 7 PM, and Saturday, October 1st at 2 PM and 7 PM. Tickets can be purchased at the Egyptian Theatre the day and time of the screening. Admission will be $6 for members and $7 for non-members.
    The Final Ten screen simultaneously across the world during a one-week period, with the Best Film and Best Actor awards determined by ballots cast by the audiences in each participating venue. By virtue of their selection by MANHATTAN SHORT, each short film is automatically Oscar-qualified. Introducing the MANHATTAN SHORT Finalists of 2022 The Final Ten MANHATTAN SHORT finalists hail from eight countries with films from Scotland, Czech & Slovakia, Spain, Australia, Finland and Lebanon, alongside two films each from France and USA. These Final Ten Films represent the best short films from among 870 submissions from 70 countries received by MANHATTAN SHORT for 2022, testimony to the enduring vibrancy and creativity of short films worldwide. The MANHATTAN SHORT Final Ten are:
    Don vs Lightning (Scotland), Love, Dad (Czech & Slovakia),Save the Bees (USA),The Treatment (Spain), Freefall (France), Fetish (USA), Freedom Swimmer(Australia), The Blanket (Finland) Warsha (Lebanon) The Big Green (France). Read Interviews with each Finalist: https://www.manhattanshort.com/finalists.html
    If the 10 short films presented by MANHATTAN SHORT have one common theme, it's how people deal with adversity in its various forms. Short films like The Blanket, Freedom Swimmer and Freefall explore how individuals react when caught up in large-scale, traumatic events. Adversity on a more personal level is the focus of short films like Warsha, Fetish, The Big Green and Love, Dad. Sometimes, the response is laughable, as in Save the Bees and The Treatment, especially when even the universe seems to be against you, as in Don vs Lightning. How these stories are told is varied as the directors that tell them. In short, there is plenty of drama and comedy interwoven with surprisingly effective newer ways of storytelling like animated documentaries. MANHATTAN SHORT also is a showcase for rising-star actors and recognizable favorites like Disney stalwart Peton List and Scotsman Peter Mullan, himself a prize-winning director, appearing in unexpected, talent-stretching roles.
    All Final Ten short films become Oscar-qualified, meaning they will be automatically eligible for an Academy Award nomination by screening for a week at the Arena CineLounge in Hollywood in the county of Los Angeles from Sep 23 to Sept 29.
    You Be the Judge! Which of these Final Ten short films is the best? That's up to a worldwide audience to decide. Cinema-goers across the United States and around the globe will become instant film critics as they are handed a ballot upon entry that allows them to vote for the Best Film and Actor. MANHATTAN SHORT is the ultimate audience award that salutes the creative talents of both directors behind the camera and actors in front of it. Votes will be sent through to MANHATTAN SHORT HQ with the winner announced at ManhattanShort.com on Monday Oct 3, at 10AM EST.

    Open Your Heart & Home To Foster Children

    09/12/2019

    Read More
    Last year, nearly 400 children spent time in foster care in Coos County. 66% spent time in more than one foster home. Many were split from their siblings.
    If a natural disaster hit our state and children were wandering the street without someone to care for them, each of us would open our homes to help in the crisis. With more than 350 children currently in foster care and more entering the system every day, we're in the midst of a disaster in our county.
    Oregon's Department of Human Services (DHS) works hard to care for children and families in crisis, but is often left with few resources for volunteer and foster parent recruitment efforts.
    If we don't step in, many children will be left without the care, comfort, and safety of a loving home during times of trauma, transition, and uncertainty. We can do better for Coos County's children. We know that our community want to take action, but they just don't know where to begin. Many of us feel helpless, doing nothing or never considering foster parenting.
    Every Child gathers community members in partnership with Oregon's Department of Human Services (DHS) to aide vulnerable children and families. And by doing so, we're able to bring love, care, and support to vulnerable children and families who previously had nowhere to turn.
    Everyone has something to bring to foster care — be it donating, volunteering or fostering. Go to Everychildcoos.org to learn more

Abbreviations

Accepted Shopper Abbreviations  For consistency & clarity in the South Coast Shopper we use a set of standard classified ad abbreviations. They are listed here to help advertisers in writing their ads and readers in understanding the ads. (There is a fee for NOT abbreviating classified ads because our rates are based on these abbreviations)  UPDATE! We use abbreviations to save space in the paper, saving cost, that we pass on to our advertisers with lower classified rates than comparable papers across the Nation. A new way of naming products has developed that make product names unnecessarily longer. We will list these names in the traditional way to continue to save space in the paper, saving cost that we can continue to pass on to our advertisers. Examples: Ranger XLT by Ford would be abbreviated to: Ford Ranger XLT OceanRunner Rainbow Series by WildSeas would be abbreviated to: WildSeas Rainbow OceanRunner In the body of an ad always use numerals. Example: Newer 3bdr home. At the beginning of an ad spell out short numbers. (Example: Three bdr home.) As always, if you do not want your ad abbreviate we can use the longer version for $2.
