2011 Palm Springs Shortfest Lineup Announced

The 17th Annual Palm Springs International Shortfest line-up has been announced. Over 331 films are on the roster for the annual festival.

“We are thrilled to see the increase this year in films from around the globe,” said Shortfest Film Curator/Director of Industry programming Kathleen McInnis.

There are many unknown actors starring in these shorts, but this year there is an increase in high profile names such as Colin Firth and Keira Knightley for ‘Steve’ and Melissa Leo for ‘The Sea is All I know.’

Olivia Wilde also serves as executive producer for the documentary Sun City Picture House (Haiti) directed by David Darg.

'It's a watershed year for Shortfest' said Festival Director Darryl McDonald.

This year’s selections will screen in Palm Springs from June 21-27.
