SILVER SPRING, Md. --- Just over a week away from the April 6-8 SONscreen film festival, General Conference overlords have ordered event organizers to provide seating for guardian angels.
The GC order has forced SONscreen logistics staff to scramble to find a venue large enough to host the Adventist film festival which is held at Loma Linda University this year.
"They could have thought of this earlier said," said exasperated event organizer Hans Tayed.
"Doubling the amount of seating we need a week out from the event is bad etiquette, even for the GC."
Scouring a hastily-compiled list of campus event spaces, a stressed out Tayed forced himself to find the silver lining to the bureaucratic cloud that had descended on the event.
"At least they haven't cancelled SONscreen," said Tayed.
"They sure aren't above nixing movie projects in the eleventh hour."
