We have partnered with Asbury Shorts USA, a national touring short film showcase, to present an exciting two-day exhibition of internationally honored shorts.
The two programs feature an eclectic mix of award-winning short film comedy, drama, documentary and animation selections and will include a few shorts produced and directed by local area filmmakers.
The two-day screening is recommended for ages 16 and way above.
The Rosendale Theatre is a vital and diverse cultural Hudson Valley nonprofit organization. They use the power of film and live performance to entertain, educate and inspire connection. The Rosendale Theater Collective believes in the power of art and film to create meaningful community. The Rosendale Theatre Collective strives to provide an inclusive environment and welcomes diversity.
Asbury Shorts USA annually screens globally honored films from past years mixed with new festival honorees, creating a rare opportunity for audiences to see world-class short films on a real cinema screen as opposed to YouTube, smartphones, or computers. Academy Award nominated director and former Asbury Shorts guest host Jason Reitman (‘JUNO,’ ‘Up in the Air,’ ‘Thank You for Smoking,’ ‘Young Adult,’ ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’) calls Asbury Shorts: “The best short film show I’ve ever experienced.”
