The Short Stack: Selections from the Venice Film Festival's "Future Reloaded" program

Posted By on Tue, Sep 24, 2013 at 12:03 PM

All 68 films from the Venice Film Festival's "Future Reloaded" program showed up online today. I cherry picked a few by directors that I liked, but they're all so short (between 1:30 and 3m) that you should dig through the entire playlist on YouTube. There is a lot of good, fun stuff in there.
