Shorts whatever the weather...

I have begun my Oscars vieiwng campaign by looking up the 20 films on the best short film longlist so that I can watch as many as possible – rather than waiting for the shortlists to be announced. After all they aren’t long!

So far I’ve mainly found trailers although I have seen one nominated short already – and you will too if you watched Toy Story 3 in the UK.
If not the link is supplied below for anyone who wants to take a look. I've supllied trailer/clip/film links for anyone who wants to join me in appreciating what look like some excellent films.

Tonight the marvellous London Short Film Festival kicks off until 16th January, so if these whet your appetite you'll find plently to love there.
