This year's virtual festival was brought to you in collaboration with

The Westport Library

Thursdays, October 8 & November 12 : 7 p.m. - 8:45 p.m.



Our annual international film festival SHORT CUTS featured two evenings of outstanding international short films curated from the Tribeca Film Festival and South by Southwest - this year, brought to you virtually. These specially selected (and often award-winning) films were followed by a live online discussion between producer Nancy Diamond and three filmmakers.
