Short Film Program
A wildly diverse collection of short film highlights from the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
For the eighth consecutive year, Rooftop Films is teaming up with Sundance Film Festival to present some of our favorite shorts from their most recent festival. Featuring innovative work by the latest generation of independent filmmakers, this riveting collection of films captures the ecstasy of athletic achievement and the obsessiveness of miniature model-makers; musical odes to afro-futurism and quiet documentation of a deep south homestead ritual; found-footage investigations of pop-culture interconnectivity and deceptively simple political satire masquerading as children’s info-tainment. This diverse program represents some of the most daring short form filmmakers working today, and captures the wildly varied storytelling modes being explored worldwide.
