Posted January 2nd, 2018 by Caryn Coleman in News


“The mission of the Nitehawk Shorts Festival is to support independent short filmmaking and part of that includes getting as many eyes on short films as possible. We believe in a symbiotic relationship between theatrical and streaming so our exciting new partnership with Sundance Now and Shudder will allow an even wider audience to have access to these incredible works,” Caryn Coleman, Director of Programming/Special Projects, Nitehawk Cinema.

The BEST OF NITEHAWK SHORTS FESTIVAL highlights exceptional short-form filmmaking from the 2017 festival at Nitehawk Cinema. More than ever before, the agility of short filmmaking allows filmmakers to address the increasingly unstable world in a remarkably relatable way. The short films in this program are a part of this array of voices that aren’t simply imbued with the political climate but also of the more humanizing aspects we need reminding of such as culture, family, and love.
