Unreasonable Shorts Screening was created with one goal in mind: Share the best short films out there... or nothing. Those who have attended our screening know we don't just talk the talk, we walk the walk. The only shorts we allow to screen are outstandingly high quality in every respect.

We have a full-service bar and kitchen. Our outdoor patio gives our guests a party and networking atmosphere.

As a thank you to our filmmakers we provide complimentary full-size prints of their poster to be displayed during the event that they are welcome to take home afterward.

We hire professional photographers to take high-quality photos for social media as well as a videographer to interview our filmmakers on the red carpet.

It is an honor for us to serve our community of filmmakers. We would be humbled by the opportunity to consider your film. Thank you.

Currently, we do not offer awards or prizes. The intent of our screening isn't to create a winner / not winner atmosphere, but rather to simply give filmmakers an opportunity to celebrate their hard work with friends and family alongside other fantastic filmmakers.

No rules. Let's see some fantastic films!

    Thank you Ijaaz! We were so excited to have the honor to be the LA premiere of your film!!

  • Unreasonable Shorts really is the best screening in LA. Never a bad line up of films, always a packed and excited audience, and the community atmosphere is great. It's so nice to have a regular screening that's just a lot of fun.

    Clarissa! Your film, Lunch Ladies, was our absolute pleasure to screen. Thank you for sharing it with us and for writing us this review!

    Festival Director Torrey puts together a stellar lineup of high-quality short films each month. At our screening we not only got to watch other awesome short films but we met a lot of talented filmmakers and potential future collaborators. The communication was clear and detailed from acceptance to screening. Plus we got this super cool large format poster print for our film to take home! Definitely recommend submitting to U.S.S.!
