The Asbury Short Film Concert features a highly entertaining and enlightening mix of live action comedy, drama and outstanding animated short films previously honored with Academy Award nominations or "Best of Show" awards at US film festivals and international festival honors. Asbury combines classic award-winning shorts from the past with some current world film festival favorites in a fast-paced program lasting approximately two hours with a brief intermission, providing communities with an extremely rare opportunity to see these amazing films in one experience.
Asbury Shorts, New York City's longest running non-competitive exhibition of award-winning short films, is a national touring showcase in its 34th year, with a mission to present the world's best short films in theaters and public venues across the country on a real cinema screen - as opposed to YouTube, smart phones and computers.
