Casablanca, Silence of the Lambs, and Lord of the Rings are just a few of the movies that will be spoofed at this event. After the short movies have been screened there will be a presentation of the "Clyde Awards" which will recognize the best of the short films. The nominees who raise the most money will win the award and all the money raised will benefit WICA.
