AN EVENING OF AWARD WINNING SHORT FILMS

Film Lineup Selected from the Following (in alphabetical order):

THE BUTTERFLY CIRCUS (USA, 23 Minutes)

A cynical man without limbs is rescued from life in a traveling freak show by a showman with a more kindly view of human values and dignity.

BYE BYE NOW (Ireland, 15 Minutes)

You might ask, "For whom the bells tolls?" In this case, the answer is the Irish phone booth, but the memories and the humor linger on.

DEATH BY SCRABBLE (USA, 5 Minutes)

A Scrabble board provides the battlefield for a married couple who barely tolerate each other, until the husband's appetite provides his wife with an unexpected opportunity.

I LEARN (United Kingdom, 4 Minutes)

A young boy resists his responsibilities with full force.

LITTLE CHILDREN, BIG WORDS (Sweden, 12 Minutes)

When a teacher asks her young students to tell the class what they want to be when they grow up, one boy gives a startling answer.

MIST FORTUNE (USA, 2 Minutes)

When two practical-minded older women share an elevator with a pair of status-obsessed young women, a comment levels the playing field in a very pungent way.

THE POSTCARD (France, 7 Minutes)

Postcard images come to life and pursue romance in this delightful live action/animated love story from France.

REDEMPTION (Australia, 4 Minutes)

A long-suffering wife gets an unexpected delivery from her occasionally inconsiderate husband in this lovely vignette about an elderly couple's marriage.

TABLE 7 (USA, 4 Minutes)

A seemingly innocent dinner at a Chinese restaurant for a young couple takes on an ominous tone, as we go behind the scenes and find a man in headphones intently listening in on their conversation.

THE TRANSLATOR (Canada, 8 Minutes)

While riding the subway with her boyfriend a foreign film translator comes to an unexpected stop.
