Our Shorts are Expanding!
Our Annual Shorts Showcase & Competition is moving from its traditional spot in our schedule to a new date and a new location.
Join us on July 14th at the Like-Me® Lighthouse where you'll help pick this year's winner.
You'll have the opportunity to watch the finalists selected for the 2015 OUT HERE NOW Short Film Competition. Then, you'll rate each film. At the end of the showcase the results will be tallied and the filmmaker whose film has the highest overall ranking will win the cash prize.
This year's finalists are:
Genesis 2:8. «And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there he put the man whom he had formed». In this story, Joćo (Nuno Pardal) and Pedro (Pedro Sousa Loureiro) live in this garden. What Joćo wants the most is for Pedro to be happy and the only way he found to make that happen is to support him in his escape with Sara (Sara Barros Leitćo). On the other hand, Pedro learned how to love Joćo and does not want to leave the garden. But one of them ate the forbidden fruit.
Two friends come back home after a costume party. Under the masks and make up, they hide their feelings and the fear of showing how they really are. They would definitely not be in Kansas anymore if they exposed their truth.
