Top Five Short Films

We hear it all the time: “less is more.”  But how do you accomplish that effectively?  These short films are some of the best examples of how to tell a compelling story in beautifully executed short form.

 

1. George Lucas In Love

Writer’s block is the worst; especially for 1967 USC college student, George Lucas.  When a young woman with an unusual hairstyle becomes his muse, he begins to see that he is surrounded by inspiration.

2. Nuit Blanche

Nuit Blanche explores a fleeting moment between two strangers, revealing their brief connection in a hyper real fantasy.

3. Grandma’s Not A Toaster

Three siblings plot to steal their ailing Grandmother’s fortune, without realizing Grandma has a plot of her own.

4A Cat In Paris

Dino, a precocious pet cat that leads a double life in the shadow-drenched alleyways of Paris. By day he lives with Zoe, a little mute girl whose mother, Jeanne, is a detective in the Parisian police force. But at night, he sneaks out the window to work with Nico, a slinky cat burglar with a big heart.

5. Bis Gleich

Albert and Marta, both in their late 70s, live across the street from one another in a bustling section of Berlin’s Mitte. Every day at 9:00 am, the two neighbors meet – each in their respective windows – to watch the world unfold.
