The 5th Annual Snake Alley Festival of Film is scheduled for June 23-25 at the Capitol Theater in downtown Burlington. As the event has grown, so has Tadd Good's role.

The short film I Met Her in the Coffee Shop won the “Best of Fest” award at the inaugural Cornfed Film Fest in Macomb.

The plot for movie, by filmmaker Erik Hogan of Las Vegas, NV, is described as “A heartbroken dude gets hit in the face by love ... literally.”

Hogan said this is the first competition in which he entered the film.  He said the award will encourage him to enter it in other competitions.

He had not heard of Macomb before being asked to enter the Cornfed Film Fest.
