Returning for the 4th season, "A Night of Micro-Shorts" remains a very popular film event with our film-loving crowd.

This year our "A Night of Micro-Shorts" moves to Crush Wine Bar, which hosts our very popular "Classics on the Patio" Film Series. Throughout that Film Series, we will be selecting some micro-shorts to be screened before classic films such as The Princess Bride, Die Hard, Weekend at Bernie's, Independence Day, and Revenge of the Nerds. Then on September 11, we will have our annual A Night of Micro-Shorts.

For this series, Micro-shorts are considered between 1-5 minutes ONLY. We accept submissions from around the world.
