With the recent increase of notebooks, i-pads, and phones to view media Short Films have been gaining in popularity. Many famous filmmakers have had their first start in their careers by creating "shorts"such as George Lucas, Sofia Coppola, and Wes Anderson to name a few. We are showing over 40 delightful shorts and 22 filmmakers are expected to attend. There are opportunities to meet some of the filmmakers themselves at parties and receptions. Come on down the shore!
