Each of our shorts blocks is designed to take our audiences on a full-spectrum emotional journey. We sprinkle in a little of everything - drama, comedy, documentary, experimental, genre, and international flavor. What unites these films and makes them part of our lineup? We have found that they all have aftertaste.
