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!

    At the end of our festival run it was a wonderful experience to bring our film back home to LA and to this intimate screening (I'm saying intimate but the place was packed!) Torrey has thought of everyone with this monthly screening - the filmmaker and the audience. He cares about keeping the event relaxed but professional and polished. You feel so respected as the filmmaker and he keeps the Q&A short but interesting for a supportive audience. Was happy to be a part of this screening!

    Screened a few of my shorts at this event and had a total blast. Torrey and his team were incredibly professional and put on a great show. I've gone back for 2nds and 3rds!

    When you're looking at a screening opportunity in Los Angeles, you're primarily worried about a) value, b) quality of material, and c) attendance. Right out of the gate, Torrey has created a series that's a cut above so many other L.A. showcases: a) he's not gouging filmmakers for the privilege of screening locally, b) I've attended two showcases now and the shorts were diverse and exciting both times, and c) both times the screening room was Standing Room Only with people who were excited to be there. He's putting hospitality, an energized atmosphere, and an enthusiastic celebration of filmmakers front-and-center at this event, and I hope it's able to sustain, grow, and continue, because I have more shorts I want to show here!

  • I really enjoyed myself at this screening. They were hospitable, answered all my questions, the crowd was packed, and the interaction was great. I'm glad I brought my film, Olde E, to it. I definitely know I'll be coming back again.
