Short films, or shots, are films of a short duration (40 minuets or less). They are simplistic yet have interestingly executed narratives.
Tuck Me In (2014)
Alex asks his father to tuck him in, but that’s not the only thing he asks for.
Fresh Guacamole (2012)
Transforming familiar objects into fresh guacamole. The film was nominated for the Best Animated Short Film award of the 85th Academy Awards, losing to Paperman. At one minute 40 seconds, it is the shortest film ever nominated for an Oscar.
Lights Out (2013)
When you are all alone in a small dark room, what do you fear the most? Is it the temporary blindness or is it the uneasy deep feeling that someone, or rather something, is observing your every move?
Despite being less than three minutes in length, you’re going to want to watch this one with all the lights on.
Bar Talk (2014)
In a dusty Texas bar, a chatty stranger insists on striking up a conversation with the man sitting next to him. The more this out-of-towner talks, the more obvious it is he’s not from ’round here. Heck, he’s not even from this planet! Based on the short story by Joe R. Lansdale.
I’m You, Dickhead (2014)
A man travels back in time to force his 10 year old self to learn guitar, so that he can get more action with the ladies in the present day.

A marriage, broken by death, is kept alive by the memories held through grape soda.
So You’ve Grown Attached (2014)
An off-beat comedy about Ex, an imaginary friend, who is forced to consider retirement when his creator, Izzy, starts to grow up.
Rose McGowan’s directorial debut is a gut punch of a film about femininity, growing up, and the dark undercurrent that runs parallel to suburban America.
Hotel Chevalier (2007)
A Wes Anderson masterpiece that not only stands alone, but serves as a prequel to his criminally overlooked The Darjeeling Limited, Hotel Chevalier goes full Woody Allen in this deconstruction of a relationship after everything has fallen apart.
