Description

(Comedy, Romance, Drama, Crime, Documentary Shorts) A small-time hustler and a serenading street knife-sharpener. A dyslexic student and a suspicious gum-toting taxi driver. An elderly couple in the twilight of this life, on the cusp of the next. Our eclectic INTERNATIONAL SHORTS program highlights how we all do whatever it takes to deal with life’s lemons—often with unexpected and bittersweet, sometimes deliciously beautiful results.

Admission to VAFF screenings is limited to those over 18 years of age holding a valid  VAFF membership card.
