About this course:

Every year, major international film festivals receive more than 50,000 short movies; different in style, genre, production value, and cost. Regardless of their quality, they all share a similar fate—more than 99 percent of these submissions will neither receive a theatrical release nor enjoy a profitable life outside the film festival circuit. Some short movies are accessible on the video-on-demand market, but there are no reviews that can help film lovers figure out which of them might be worth watching. This course addresses these issues by the rare and unique opportunity of viewing some of the best dramas, documentaries, comedies, and animated shorts; carefully selected by a returning Osher instructor who spent the last few years attending short film festivals and directing one of his own. The result is an anthology of the best short movies, with each class meeting featuring an 80-minute compilation of shorts, preceded by a brief introduction and followed by a post-screening discussion.
