CAAMFest 2013

Shorts

BiggerTheyCome

One of the gems of the festival is the Shorts Program: a convergence of established and emerging filmmakers who are limited (or liberated) by their runtime. This year’s program brings a diverse set of snapshots of the world to Bay Area audiences. Like a marvelous painting or photograph, these films will inspire and entertain.

  5. Shaya

    WRENCH IN THE WORKS

    This one is for the eager beggar. The regretful thug. The plus-sized backup dancer, and the refugee brimming with heart. Take a second glance, for you have met them before.
