Movie MomLast fall, Handsome and I attend a short film festival sponsored by our local paper. We were blown away.
When we were younger, the only indie theater around showed short films, kinda the way they were shown way back when--in conjunction with a larger movie. I always loved this.
So when the large indie theater we now go to announced the showing of shorts--live action and animated--Handsome and I were on board. We chose animated.
