    Summary
    The idea for Show Me Shorts came about in response to a lack of opportunities for us to watch short films. In that spirit, we bring you for the first time a session of films that can be watched by anyone. Young or old, tall or small, students, adults, kids, dreamers - there is a variety to cater for all tastes. They are all unrestricted, which means there is nothing too scary, horrifying or objectionable in any of the films here. It's good clean fun for all!
