Asbury Shorts, New York’s longest running short film exhibition returns to the Holy City on Thursday, January 16th, 2020 to present their nationally recognized: "39th Short Film Concert" at the Charleston Music Hall at 7 pm. The show is recommended for ages 16 and above. Holy City Sinner is thrilled to once again partner with the event, as founder/editor Christian Senger will return as this year's guest host.
Asbury Shorts USA combines classic shorts with new global festival honorees creating a rare opportunity to see world-class shorts on a real cinema screen rather than YouTube or smart phones. The January 16th lineup will feature a mix of US festival “Best of Show” winners and international honorees. Director Jason Reitman (JUNO, Up in the Air, Thank You for Smoking and Young Adult) calls Asbury Shorts: “The best short film show I’ve ever seen.”
Highlights include: “The Caption” - the story of a frustrated cartoon caption writer whose submissions are constantly rejected by a famous New York magazine straining his health and marriage. Nick Miller and Jonny Zwick of Los Angeles are the co-directors of this smart comedy. Director Amy Nicholson’s multi festival award winning documentary “Pickle,” which examines the complicated relationships humans have with their pets in a film of unexpected warmth and mirth. There will be ten globally honored shorts in total in the two-act program.
