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 is not to compete with other festivals, but to give filmmakers an opportunity to share their hard work with friends and family alongside other fantastic filmmakers.

No rules. Let's see some fantastic films!

  • 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.

    Thank you Xavier! So so so happy to hear you enjoyed the event! We were lucky to have Olde E :)

  • Can't say enough good things about this night! Probably the best line-up of short films that I've ever been a part of. I went back the following month and it, too, was stacked with great films. Not to mention how many filmmakers were in attendance and in an environment where everyone gets to mingle and meet before and after the screenings. And to top it all off, Torrey makes all the filmmakers an awesome 3-foot movie poster! Great guy, great fest.

    Aw thank you Eddie! We absolutely LOVE that you enjoyed the event so much. We were lucky to have your film, not the other way around!

    I had such a fantastic experience screening my short film at Unreasonable Shorts. Everything from the first contact with Torrey to the Uber ride home with a giant poster of my film they had custom printed and sent me home with in my lap. After having screened our film at several other festivals around, I can honestly say that the block of films we screened along side at Unreasonable Shorts was, as a whole, was exceptional. Great talent. Great writing. Great production value. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FESTIVAL !!!

    An amazingly curated lineup of films, fantastic networking experience, prime venue, and inspirational host made this festival an absolute blast. Never before have I attended a festival where films were so meticulously, yet so diverse and inclusive. Five star festival across the board, and an overall good time!!

    Cool venue, high-caliber films, great networking, and an all-around good time... this once-a-month festival is a blast! Imagine a full house (and then some) of fans and filmmakers supporting some of the best short films LA has to offer. Will definitely submit to this fest again.
