As a companion piece to my 250 favourite movies list on my new Letterboxd page I decided to share some of the short films that have impressed me along the way. Of course, there are too many short films I've seen over the years for me to recall, and it's nearly impossible to try and find them.
In any case, this selection have stuck with me. As a short film programmer for A Night Of Horror International Film Festival I see so many short films that are too ambitious. I find myself telling people over and over that short films that clock in over fifteen minutes in length rarely succeed in achieving what they want to do. Keep in mind also that most film festivals (unless its specially designed for short films) don't have a lot of time allocated for short films, so if the short is long, then it has a slimmer chance of being programmed, no matter how good it is.
It's curious, because several of the shorts films in my top ten are half and hour, or longer. Go figure.
