Shorts Program

Often led by personal vision, as opposed to achieving financial success, short films tend to be a distilled experience of emotional storytelling, savvy editing and heart. It is often the form where filmmakers dare to dream, and where audiences find new emerging talent. It is our honor to continue carving out space for these filmmaking dreams.
