Short Film Program
Love is Short (Films)
Short films about people who swiped right and the sexy, disastrous, hilarious, unexpected circumstances that ensued.
The start of summer brings new opportunities for love. With films featuring everything from the blush of first love to the end of a bittersweet romance, these shorts ignite passion and challenge initial notions of what love can be. Teenagers wrestle with new feelings, a prank-loving couple goes on honeymoon, and a chance encounter with an old lover brings back animalistic memories. Funny, sweet, touching, awkward, deadly: no two loves are alike, and neither are any of these films. So join us for one special evening on a Manhattan rooftop and we can see where fate leads us from there.

The group is a member of Brooklyn-based label and artist collective Floordoor Records (A Bunch of Dead People, Supplier) and Philadelphia-based goodhowareyou records (Blushed, Secret Nudist Friends, Broke Body). No Depression called the group's full-length “a fine, wide-ranging release, packed with more in its six songs than most full length albums can hope to muster."
