AFI's Community Outreach & What You Can Do

AFI Dallas: A Short (List)

AFI Dallas: A Short (List)

The short films run 5-15 minutes each, and the whole program will last about an hour. You might see 5 or 6 short films during that time. All of them will give you a taste of something different. One or two will take you by complete surprise and have you thinking, "What the hell?"
