Shorts That Are Not Pants: A new short film screening series

Shorts That Are Not Pants

I love short films! They’re such bite-sized movie goodness. But we don’t really get an opportunity to watch them a lot, and really – where do you start? Well, in 2012, someone will be doing all the hard work for you. Beginning this month, Shorts That Are Not Pants will be partnering with Future Shorts and the NFB to bring you curated program of short films on a quarterly basis.

The inaugural Shorts That Are Not Pants program will screen this Friday, January 13 at 7:00 pm, and will feature short films from the Future Shorts “Pop Up Festival,” and two animated shorts from the NFB (including   Wild Life ). Other shorts to be screened are David O’Reilly’s The External World , Oscar-winner God of Love , and Luminaris .

Tickets are $10 at the door, or $8 if you buy in advance. Of course, if you wear shorts to the screening, you can get in for the low, low price of $5. (Quite a deal, if it’s not too cold on Friday.) The screening takes place at the NFB Mediatheque (150 John Street at Richmond). For more information, please visit the Shorts That Are Not Pants website.


Obsessed with watching movies as far back as she can remember, Pam loves film enough to have two university degrees in the subject. When not focused on a movie screen, she can usually be found reading, cooking, touring vineyards, or planning where to spend her vacation time.
