Chattahoochee Hills, GA (PRWEB) July 26, 2014
Asbury Shorts, New York City’s longest running short film exhibition, will bring their nationally acclaimed shorts “concert” to The Inn at Serenbe on Thursday night, August 7th. Tickets cost $10 general admission. The event is called: “Shorts at Sundown” and is co-presented by The Serenbe Film Society.
Asbury mixes classic, world-renowned films with current festival honorees providing a rare opportunity for audiences to see elite shorts in a theatrical setting rather than on a computer, smart phone or iPad. Academy Award nominated director Jason Reitman (“JUNO,” “Up in the Air,” “Thank You for Smoking” and “Young Adult”) calls Asbury Shorts: “The best short film show I’ve ever seen.” The fast-paced, highly entertaining evening features the best in live action comedy, drama and outstanding animation. Highlights of the August 7th show include:
ASAD – The remarkable coming of age story of a young Somali boy living precariously in his war torn country, who has to choose between becoming a pirate or a fisherman.
