The 37th Asbury Short Film Concert
Asbury Shorts, New York’s longest running short film exhibition, returns to Charleston, South Carolina on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 to present their nationally recognized 37th Short Film Concert at The Charleston Music Hall, with the first film blasting on to the screen at 7:00pm. This eclectic presentation of award winning shorts is strongly recommended for ages 16 and way way above.
Asbury Shorts USA combines classic short films with new global festival honorees creating a rare opportunity to see world-class shorts on a real cinema screen rather than You Tube or smart phones. The line up on January 16th will include a mix of Oscar Nominees, US film festival “Best of Show” winners and international honorees all in one sitting! Oscar nominated director Jason Reitman (JUNO, Up in the Air, Thank You for Smoking and Young Adult) calls Asbury Shorts: “The best short film show I’ve ever seen.”
Asbury Shorts is celebrating the work of women directors in this year’s presentation. Highlights include: “The Suitor,” a dark comedy from director Kate Riedl of Australia, a surreal tale of a young courtship in the wilds of the Australian Outback. “The Drive” is the poignant story of Evie, a loving daughter who struggles with role reversals as she drives her aging parents to an assisted living facility. Corinne Kassor directed this heart warming short. Director Amy Nicholson’s documentary “Pickle” examines the complicated relationships humans have with their pets in a film of unexpected warmth and mirth.
Asbury Shorts concerts have been presented at: The Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Guild Hall in East Hampton, N.Y., Dante Hall in Atlantic City, N.J, Summer Stage in Central Park, The Director’s Guild Theater in Manhattan, The Vero Beach Museum of Art in Florida, The AERO Theatre in Santa Monica, CA, Royal Festival Hall in London, UK, The Osprey Arts Center in Nova Scotia, Canada and the Leminske Theater in Berlin, Germany to name a few of the prestigious venues where audiences have enjoyed these amazing films. Now for a second consecutive year at Charleston Music Hall.
