The Best Short Films

Why Watch? Call it sugary, call it a little schmaltzy, but there’s a lot to love about Takashi Doscher‘s new short film that focuses on a very lucky cab driver who wins tickets to Game 7 of the World Series and his last client of the day. Slickly shot with as much heart as humor, it overcomes a general Aw Shucks vibe with a loveable comedic lug in star Ted Huckabee and stands as further proof that Doscher is a talent to watch out for. What will it cost? Only 8 minutes. Skip Work. You’ve Got Time For More Short Films


With the entire original run of The Twilight Zone available to watch instantly, we’re partnering with Twitch Film to cover all of the show’s 156 episodes. Are you brave enough to watch them all with us? The Twilight Zone (Episode #112): “No Time Like The Past” (airdate 3/7/63) The Plot: A man goes to the past to right some wrongs…but can he? The Goods: Stupid, crappy old time travel. It’s such a spectacular innovation, but we can never do anything good with it (except that one time I stole Hitler’s wallet). As it turns out, things are pretty much set in stone. But Paul Driscoll (Dana Andrews) doesn’t believe that. So, he sets out into the ether of things already seen to try to change history’s course.


Why Watch? This look at interwoven lives brought together by a gas station robbery asks the tough question of what happens to humanity when a slip of paper is tossed into the mix. In this case, the piece of paper happens to be a winning lottery ticket. Something so small, can change the course of violence. It’s a tight, yet fairly predictable exercise in human nature, but it’s best feature is undoubtedly Rider Strong. The guy from Boy Meets World is in this thing. Seriously. Check it out. Plus, festival favorite Lynn Shelton (Humpday) has a small but important role. What Will It Cost? Just fifteen minutes of your time. Does it get better any better than that? Only if we bought you a winning lotto ticket while you watched. Check out Your Lucky Day for yourself:
