Twisted Shorts Holiday Film Festival

Thursday, December 10, 7:00 pm
From the folks who perpetrate the North Bay's popular show Twisted Christmas Live comes this cinematic celebration of the outrageous side of the holidays featuring offbeat comedy shorts by Bay Area filmmakers. Presented by North Bay journalist/performer David Templeton (who organized this show with Dan Zastrow), the evening is also a lighthearted homage to those old late-night hosted TV movie shows, combining hilariously weird shorts with live commentary and other surprises. The program will include, among others: the quirky animation Santalicious, in which Santa's reindeer get to the bottom of his recent weight-loss (and shockingly buff physique); Present Tense, an off-the-wall "home movie" in which the annual Christmas-morning family gift-swap ritual goes terribly wrong; and the mock-public service announcement Suicidal Christmas Trees, in which the title character's unhappy life is told in graphic detail. Approximately 90 min.

Proceeds from this event benefit the Marin County Food Bank
