Film School Shorts


Film School Shorts is a half-hour weekly series that showcases short student films from across the country. Each filmmaker has the potential to become the next world famous filmmaker and each short film will make you laugh, gasp and empathize, sometimes in the same breath. The featured films — quirky comedies, slice-of-life dramas and hard-hitting thrillers — have won international film awards and have wowed audiences at some of the most acclaimed film festivals in the world: Cannes, Sundance, Toronto and SXSW.

Meet our student filmmakers, learn more about the films, and view some of our award-winning shorts online at, and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter!
