Mini Movies

The Mini-Movies are for people who would love to see four movies at the Festival; but only have the time, money (or patience) to see one. These epic short films aren't quite long enough to call themselves movies – but they're pretty gosh-darn close. The Mini-Movies have something for everybody: we begin with a boxing drama set in the 1930s, into a surreal coming-of-age tale, followed by a kinetic comedy from Tokyo, and an action-comedy homage to the work of Michael Bay rounds out the program.

Wallace is a down and out boxer turned bar owner after being forced to leave the boxing ring.
