Showcasing short films from around the world. A wealth of diverse approaches, original voices, and thoughtful considerations of the form. Immerse yourself in these varied visions of the world.
The short form has always been one of the most unique tools at a filmmaker's disposal, a condensed artistic form that forces its maker to devise inventive and economical ways of working. As a format, it has been neglected and unrepresented in distribution and streaming, often overshadowed by the more titanic spectacle of individual longer features.
The selected shorts aren't pinned down by a specific ideological or thematic point — the richness and plurality is, in many ways, the point.
