Shorter is better: the Cinebuds advocate for seeing the most imaginative set of shorts at the MKE film festival

"Shorts: Let's Get Animated"

Monday, April 25 2:15 at The Oriental Theater

The shorts are consistently my favorite part of the festival. They are often weird. They are punchy. It's fun to compare them to each other. And if you don't like one, just wait five minutes until the next one starts. Let's Get Animated are the festival's animated shorts but that doesn't mean they are for kids. This collection is imaginative and ambitious, covering all types of mixed media. These tales of triumph and heartbreak are magically brought to life via colored pencil, pen, paper, CG, and in one case, Happy Meal toys. (NOTE: This program is a PG-13 experience.)
