Friday night kicks off our three-night extravaganza of amazing international shorts. Selected from a record-breaking pool of 1400 submissions, it's a variety show of different styles and methods that has something profound or peculiar to delight just about everyone.

Here's some of what you'll see: The surrealist paintings of Giorgio de Chirico burst to life as a zesty and romantic parkour practitioner hunts for his lost lover in a floating city. An alien shaman on another planet performs a metaphysical ritual to quickly transport himself away from a colossal, deadly sand storm. In the depth of night, time freezes and a wild Brazilian Carnival of joyous demon spirits break free to dance and play in the streets. A young pig's new friendship becomes the vital pivot point between kindness and a world of ashes in the evening's featured short, 2014 Oscar-nominee "The Dam Keeper."

(Includes 32 films. Two intermissions. Some mature themes.)
