Aurora Picture Show's 16th Annual Extremely Shorts Film Festival

eventdetail

The films selected for the 16th Annual Extremely Shorts Film Festival represent diverse themes and voices, all under three minutes long. Juror Emily Doe from the Sundance Film Festival finalized the selection of 20 films from more than 150 submissions. These short films will be screened at three separate screenings, with the Awards Reception on June 1.

The annual competition brings to the forefront the latest in artist-made experimental, narrative and avant-garde film. At each screening, audience members will be invited to cast votes for their top three films to determine the winners for the 2013 Extremely Shorts Film Festival. The screening includes several world premieres and selections from around the world, as well as some films that have already been recognized internationally including Sinsis, which received the Rising Award at the Canada International Film Festival, and Passio, which received the Grand Prize Award at the Aarhus Short Film Challenge in Denmark.

Repeat Extremely Short filmmakers include Ted Kennedy and Jenny Stark both from the United States.

Doe will be in attendance for all screenings. The final night of the festival will feature a Reception with the Awards Ceremony to announce the top three cash prizes selected by the audience. Food and drinks will also be included in the Saturday event.
