Sundance Film Festival Short Films: Best of 2013
Starts at 7 pm

A roller coaster mix of drama and comedy, the Sundance Film Festival Short Films program is a 93-minute collection of eight short films from the 2013 edition of the Festival. Vibrant storytelling highlights the group, including fiction, documentary and animation, with five award-winners. With no rules, the short film serves as a proving ground for young filmmakers to make their mark and for established filmmakers to take risks in story and style.

Runtime: 93 minutes. Watch trailer here:

Cost: $7 for Members, $10 for Non-members. Tickets available soon. Admission to the museum itself is free on Wednesday evenings.
