In only minutes, these films immerse you in fully realized narratives that leave a mark

Short films often enjoy much greater latitude in terms of style, structure and approach than many feature films. They are also one of the last bastions of true directorial vision, unencumbered by external forces that impose limits on a filmmaker’s control. The shorts in these five programs offer excellent examples of masterful storytelling, originality, and highly skilled filmmaking within the condensed time limitations of this wonderfully imaginative artform.
