Top 5 | Anticipated Short Films at Florida Film Festival 2015

Have you seen this year’s Florida Film Festival trailer by Academy Award Nominee (and longtime friend of the fest) Bill Plympton? Next time you stop by, make sure to wish a very Happy 30th Birthday to the staff at Enzian Theater!


This is our list of our Top 5 Anticipated Shorts.  You can find our list of  Top 5 Anticipated Features here!




Blood Below the Skin

We see the lives of three teenage girls who, despite being in different high school circles, form a special bond after an unexpected event.  It explores the secret lives and true selves behind their bedroom walls.

Dolphin Lover

In the 1970s Malcolm Brenner met Dolly the dolphin at an amusement park in Florida.  The two would go on to have a sexual and, according to him, consensual relationship. Only in Florida. (Warning: While this film is Not Rated, it is probably not one meant for younger viewers.)

Midnight Shorts

This might seem like a cop-out but I’m putting the entire Midnight Shorts program, all 17 of them, on this list. Every year this program is certain to be a rowdy party with some of the most sick, twisted, and deranged shorts of the festival.  If you’re looking to awkwardly laugh, be disgusted, and most certainly offended, this is where you’ll want to be. (Warning: This program is NOT for the faint at heart!)

Myrna the Monster

FFF alumni Ian Samuels, writer/director of 2013’s Caterwaul, returns with the story of Myrna.  She’s an alien from he moon trying to make her way through life in LA, with punk legend Kathleen Hanna providing the voice.

Rory Uphold, FFF alum and creator of the popular web series OnlyinHelLA, returns with her follow up to Safety (2012).  Her character Andy is back, but this time we see her on a first date that’s quickly fumbled but has an awkward sense of humor.
