Announcing The 2011 San Francisco Shorts Film Festival

Short films often get the short end of the stick when compared to their older sibling, the feature-length. Sure, you can always go to YouTube to check out the endless array of mini movies, but nothing can ever compare to the thrill of seeing a block of selected short films on a big screen.  And while we patiently wait for the movie industry to start releasing short films before all of their feature presentations at least we can find some reprieve in The San Francisco International Festival of Short Films (SF Shorts for short).

This year’s festival features seven different blocks of short films from twenty countries, making it hard for anybody to not find something that tickles their fancy.

Admission is $10 general/$8 for seniors and students.  All screenings will be held at the Roxie Theater from September 8th to the 10th.

67 Films From 20 Countries: SF Shorts Festival Coming To The Red Vic 9/8 – 9/11

With so many choices to choose from at this year’s festival of short films how does one go about deciding which day to attend?  Thankfully, this year’s program is broken down into 7 different themes.  There’s Dare To Care (films on love, and commitment), I Am (films on illusion, reality, and identity), Ties That Bind (films on escape, transition, and fulfillment), Hocus Pocus (films connecting time, place, and people), Lost in Transition (films exploring change, choices, and life navigation), Want, Need, Must (films that examine the facets of desire, obsession, and compulsion), and Right Back At You (films dealing with the consequences of betrayal).  So, whatever the selection you choose, be sure and show up a little earlier than the start time in order to grab your homemade Red Vic culinary confection and be treated to a few specially selected world premiere music videos.  Click on the jump for the full SF Shorts schedule Read More…
