Film preview: Ohio Shorts screening and reception

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Now in its 20th year, this shorts film festival at the Wexner Center for the Arts presents 10 works from adult Ohio filmmakers, along with 10 more in the youth division. The collection of shorts spans a number of genres, and features six Columbus-based films (in the adult division) and some must-see highlights.

The thought-provoking art documentary “Tiny Out Loud” (directed by Andrew Ina) takes a look at local artist Stephanie Rond and her varied work, and features cameos from a number of Columbus creatives. The animated short “Nautia” — from a group of CCAD animation students — follows a young girl who lives at the bottom of the sea, and the early stills look stunning. Seth Radley examines the intersection of students’ reactions to the death of Osama bin Laden and college traditions in “Mirror Lake and Osama bin Laden.”

All films will be screened and the audience will vote for Audience Award, while three judges will also select a winner.
