First Annual Short Short Story Film Festival

One evening. Dozens of film stories. Told in five minutes or less...



How do filmmakers tell a story in less than five minutes?  Not music videos, trailers, or experimental projects, but honest-to-goodness beginning-middle-end stories?


Find out at the first annual Short Short Story Film Festival, featuring filmmakers from across the globe telling their unique stories in under five minutes.


From documentaries to comedies to animation to dramatic shorts, you will see succinct presentations of all kinds of short stories.  Featuring selections and near misses from the 11th annual Rhode Island International Film Festival this past August.
