Scribe Jamie Linden will kick off the fest with the premiere of his short, “Ten Year.” “After-School Special,” written by Neil LaBute and helmed by Jacob Chase, will also debut on opening night.

Weeklong fest will feature shorts covering a wide range of genres, including horror, animation, docu and musicvideos. Oscar winning shorts “God of Love” and “The Lost Thing” will also be featured during the fest.
