What is Metro Shorts?
Metro Shorts is a live screening of short films, written, produced, directed, and performed by Edmonton’s best and worst up-and-coming cinematic sensations. Metro Shorts is a chance for independent short filmmakers to get their work seen, adjudicated by professionals, get paid, win prizes, and be forced to make a second short. Loosely based on Channel101.com in LA and Metro TV in Edmonton, local producers submit their comedy shorts to be shown at Metro Cinema. The audience acts as studio executives, voting to decide if the short is good enough for a command production of a second short, to be presented at the next installment of Metro Shorts. If the short doesn't get selected for a second installment, you're free to try again. This is your chance to get your film shorts seen, to compete against other local artists, and to one day rule the world. Hosted by Mostly Water Theatre, produced by Metro Cinema.
