This year they are showcasing 90 minutes of short films centering on the theme: The Great Recession. The shorts will focus on various situations with the effects of the economy. Filmmakers from across the country have submitted a light-hearted group of films about the current economic recession. I find this interesting and good timing with the downturn in the economy.
