Heartstrings Program

(85min. NR)

16th Edition – One Day Only!

This competitive international film festival includes live-action and animated films which tell a story in under six minutes.  Celebrating brevity in filmmaking, the festival includes films from across the globe.

Each program, Heartstrings and Headtrip (ticketed separately), has a distinctive tone yet wide-ranging styles and topics, showcasing over a dozen films tightly sequenced in under ninety minutes.

The Heartstrings Program highlights films of a more emotional nature – comedic, bittersweet, or (as the name implies) tugging at the heart strings.

The festival includes audience voting for each program, as well as a separate juried component with jurors from Merging Arts’ syndicated Spoiler Alert Radio film interview radio show.
