Shorts With Legs Season 2022

8 Episodes Shorts

Fantastic Fest’s patented bipedal program of short-subject cinema that buck conventions and blur boundaries of genre, aesthetics, and taste.

Fantastic Fest’s patented bipedal program of short-subject cinema that buck conventions and blur boundaries of genre, aesthetics, and taste returns with a barrage of provocative peculiarities. Expect the unexpected, but prepare for an array of unique sensibilities — from the polished to the anarchic — as absurdism and experimentation abound and silliness co-mingles with severity. Featuring the latest masterwork from acclaimed avant-garde auteur Velasco Broca (OUR FRIEND THE MOON), an uncomfortable date photographed by Eugene Kotlyarenko (SPREE), and a romantic rumination on Taco Bell. Live Más.

Episodes

ALEGRÍAS RIOJANAS

28m

Director - Velasco Broca

Acclaimed experimental filmmaker Velasco Broca (ECHOS DER BUCHRÜCKEN, OUR FRIEND THE MOON) catapults an ophthalmologist into a hellish purgatory populated by grotesque creatures and devils.

AMOR TO LOVE

12m

Director - Ted Marsden

What’s a better way to ring in a five-year anniversary than sharing three layers of cheesy admiration, sizzling hot passionate ground beef, all grilled to deep perfection in Taco Bell’s new Grilled Stuffed Corazon-a-rito? Real question.

THE BREAKDOWN PARABLES

19m

Director - Emil Benjamin

This series of bitingly satirical vignettes captures the bizarre interactions between competitive actors in a purgatory-like casting office and serves as a wild, caustic takedown of the coded toxicity endemic in the acting world.

FROM WATER COMES MELON

13m

Director - Micah Vassau

A young woman comes across a precious object, the last watermelon on earth, and must decide whether to relinquish it or enjoy the fruit’s life-giving qualities herself.

HUBBARDS

5m

Director - Kevin Ralston

Dude just wants to find the bones of his brother, but what will give him the sustenance to carry out his quest? An epic in four acts.

I DREAMED I HEARD A SONG CALLED HABIBI

9m

Director - Benji Kast

An experimental mixed-media vibe that ruminates on technology, theater, and transformation (among other notions) set to a soundscape by Your 33 Black Angels.

PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE

14m

Directors - Lizzy Deacon & Ika Schwander

When a woman allows a shyster life coach into her life, she embarks on a journey of peculiar healing and coping strategies in order to tackle her feelings of fear, rejection and grief. Hard to describe and impossible to categorize, this WTF delight is governed by its own insane internal logic and defiantly marches to the beat of sawing a pigeon’s head off.

THE STRAIGHT BALL

12m

Directors - Eugene Kotlyarenko & Nate Wilson

Eugene Kotlyarenko (SPREE, WOBBLE PALACE) collabs with Nate Wilson (FUCK BUDDIES) to capture this funny, twitchy portrait of a date derailed.
