Blimp: Our Unblemished Past wins Akron Film Festival contest

Posted By on Mon, Dec 14, 2009 at 1:16 PM

Last week, the Akron Film Festival announced the winner of a contest called "The New History of Akron." The concept called for local filmmakers to make a mockumentary about Akron that explores an "alternate history" of the city. The winning film, Blimp: Our Blemished Past, is a five-minute long fake documentary about the “beautiful beasts” that features an array of odd characters talking about the history of the blimps. It's not exactly fact-based, but it is pretty funny. You can see the entire film here. The winners received a $250 cash prize and an assortment of items donated by Akron businesses Crave, House of Hunan, Revival and Square Records.
