Some of the best, most idiosyncratic cinema in the world today is being made in the short-film format. Liberated from the commercial dictates of conventional distribution and the longueurs of feature-length plotting, short films have the opportunity to be anything. They can tell an epic and tell a joke; prolong a moment and skip across decades; limn the universe and encompass a life. They are narratives and non-narratives, documentaries and fables, diaries and panoramas.The first annual Olympia Short Cuts Film Festival is proud to present a selection of the greatest modern short films from around the world. – AS
