Each year we screen approximately 35-40 short films under 15 minutes in length. We will also consider films with longer runtimes. Films are shown in an indoor theater during the 30-minute stage transition times between musical performances on the outdoor stage. Once it is dark, we show films outdoors on a large screen and unveil a commissioned film score.
