Festival Description:

How do filmmakers tell a story in under six minutes? Not just trailers, music videos, PSAs or experimental projects, but honest-to-goodness beginning-middle-end stories? The Short Short Story Film Festival celebrates brevity in filmmaking, featuring films from across the globe, lovingly harvested by the folks here at MergingArts Productions.
From mini-documentaries to sentimental melodramas to black comedies to animated horror, the festival features succinct presentations of all kinds of short film stories.
