A collection of short films made around the world by a variety of directors. Many short films act as a starting point for new directors and some are regarded as classics in their own right. Many Kiwi shorts are featured here as well as anthology films with multiple directors ("Aria", "Tube Tales", "11'09"01 - September 11"). There are avant-garde films from Kenneth Anger and early works from Martin Scorsese, Jane Campion and Werner Herzog. In all a most interesting assemblage of this cinematic mini art form.
