    Abracadabra, Danny McBride: A Look Back at Summer's Best Short Films

    Every Summer Los Angeles hosts a multitude of film festivals and special screenings devoted to short films. This year the Sundance Film Festival jumped into the fray with a free screening on August 21, 2009 entitled "Downtown and Dirty Shorts."

A week earlier, the HollyShorts Film Festival closing night program was standing-room-only as shorts directed by Scarlett Johansson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Courteney Co...

The film opens today at Cinema Village in New York City, following a record-breaking run at the Siskel Center ...
