Literally Short Film Festival Is About Showing And Preserving Houston’s International Nature, Founder Says

Short movies from all over the world compete to be showcased in this Houston film festival.

Now in its fourth year, Houston-based Literally Short Film Festival started as a small project only related to the bilingual arts and culture magazine Literal.

It quickly became a stand-alone annual event that gathers different generations from diverse communities in town, and promotes novel movie directors from all over the world by showcasing and awarding short movies.

Mexican-American founder and director Lorís Simón Salum, an awarded documentary director herself, explains how the festival was created, the dynamics of the selection process, and what is the ultimate purpose behind the project.

This year, the festival will take place from June 14th to June 18th . You can find more information here.
