Asbury Shorts NY is committed to bringing the best short films to wide-ranging audiences, and tonight, they’ll be curating the creme de la short film creme at Old Stone House. “The Short Film Concert” — an evening of (surprise!) award-winning short films — is a rare opportunity to see shorts as they’re meant to be seen: on the big screen, “not on an iPod* or computer.” (Also, it’s a way to see movies in the neighborhood somewhere other than the Pavillion, which is apparently still the worst.)
On the program for tonight:
“Friends and Strangers” directed by Ed Caban
“The Lost Thing” directed by Andrew Ruhemann & Shaun Tanand
“Bye Bye Now” directed by Aideen O’Sullivan & Ross Whitaker
“While the Widow was Away” directed by Adam Reid
“She’s a Soul Man” directed by Caitlin Byrnes
Special musical guests Cumbiagra get things rolling with some pre-movie Latin fusion at 8; the films start at 8:40. There’s a $5 suggested donation, and the evening is BYO beach blanket or lawn chair. Recommended for audiences 16+.
*Not to quibble, but are people doing a lot of short-film watching on iPods these days?
