NITEHAWK SHORTS FESTIVAL SELECTS is a curated 91-minute theatrical program featuring seven short films from the 2016 Nitehawk Shorts Festival. For the past five years this annual festival has championed new voices in independent short filmmaking to audiences in New York with our sold out screenings and filmmaker talks. Though short in length, all films are under 20-minutes, these shorts encompass styles from documentary to thriller and, as a whole program, represents the diversity, inclusiveness, and power of succinct storytelling.

The program includes shorts like Saj Pothiawala’s Vegas (Festival Jury Award) about an awkward young man and his encounter with an eccentric prostitute and Marysia Makowska’s Dahlia (Festival Jury Award Runner-Up) about two bored young girls who deal with unintended consequences after breaking into a stranger’s house in Cape Town. Documentaries about the first gay country album in These C*cksucking Tears by Dan Taberski (Huffington Post Impact Award) and a rural community’s preparation for prom in The Send-Off by Ivete Lucas and Patrick Bresnan are included alongside the feminist horror short about a young woman’s fiercest self in Catherine Fordham’s Consomme, a woman’s self-discovery through vaping in the haze of Los Angeles in Doron Max Hagay’s Vape (Cinematography Award), and a couple’s journey to the truth in Grace Rex’s Be Good (Audience Award).
