Call it Park City on the Pacific—don’t miss this touring selection of short films from the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, hand-picked by the festival’s shorts programmer Mike Plante.
Over the course of its 30-year history, the Sundance Film Festival has been widely considered the premier showcase for short films and the launch pad for careers of many now-prominent independent filmmakers. From a film on the struggle to understand the meaning of life to a hilarious government deposition, this year’s selection demonstrates why the short film is alive and kicking and still one of the most exciting places to spot new talent. Special thanks to Mike Plante, Shorts Programmer, Sundance Film Festival
