RAHWAY – Asbury Shorts, New York‘s longest running exhibition of award winning, international short films, brings “An Evening of the World’s Best Short Films” to the historic and beautiful Union County Performing Arts Center on Saturday, April 17, 2010 at 8PM.
The evening’s 30th Anniversary “Short Film Concert” will feature international award winning short films from the past 12 years! “Best of Sundance!” “Best of Tribeca!” “Best of London!” Tickets are $15 general admission.
The fast-paced program will feature 2001 Oscar Winner for “Best Animated Short,” Father & Daughter, an emotionally poignant tale of a young girl who sees her father off on a long sea voyage…and waits almost her entire life for his return.
The evening will also feature 2007 winner of “Best Narrative Short Film” at the Tribeca Film Festival, Super Powers, a hilarious story of a young married couple who try to mend their relationship by pretending to be super heroes!
Two new international festival circuit honorees in the program include: Santa Claus: The Facist Year, created by world famous animator Bill Plympton whose heralded films have been nominated for Academy Awards in the past and seen on MTV and other major television networks. Also, three time “Best of Show” winner, Gone Fishing from Great Britain. In all, the evening will present 12 shorts and a few unannounced surprised.
