Throughout the TriMedia Film Festival are blocks of time set aside for short films. These short pieces of work range from 1 to 52 minutes. This year there are four different blocks, each with a different theme: Comedy Shorts, Wild Side Shorts, Documentary Shorts and Heartfelt Shorts.
The Comedy Shorts are a festival favorite. The 8 films being shown have topics that range from a funeral procession to a spelling bee, and are sure to make you laugh. A couple of the shorts feature well-known celebrities. Lily Tomlin and Jesse Tyler Ferguson from Modern Family co-star in The Procession and Brenda Song and Joseph Mazzello from Social Network, star in First Kiss.
