Second Look: Shorts from the 2012 Fest
The inventiveness of shorts filmmakers never ceases to amaze us. Submissions for the 2012 Dallas international Film Festival include a breakfasting lost soul, a chicken in the city, a twist on history, and a conflicted father-son relationship. Watch them again below, and don’t forget about our selection of short films from the 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 Fests.
