About the Film:
Sundance Film Festival’s annual traveling program of short films selected from the festival is widely considered the premier short film showcase. It has also been the launchpad for many now-prominent independent filmmakers for more than 30 years. Including fiction, documentary and animation from around the world, the 95-minute 2017 program of seven films offers new audiences a taste of the festival, from laugh-out-loud comedy to contemplative reflections of the world we live in.
