Don’t Sell These Films Short!

This week we bring you a longer list than usual, but we don’t think we’re telling any tall tales when we say that these shorts are worth the few minutes it takes to watch them. Some of our picks are documentaries, others brief but sweet stories. Some are animated, while others are live-action. You may have seen some already on the big screen in our annual showing of Oscar nominated short films, or maybe they’re completely new to you. In any case, we’ve got a condensed cinematic vision for everyone! P.S. – If you aren’t already following Short of the Week, be sure to check it out. SotW showcases curated shorts every Monday and Thursday.
