I am a big fan of the Palm Springs International Short Film Festival. All the filmmakers have unmitigated passion for their craft which gives the festival a grassroots feel waiting for community support.
Most of the entries submitted to the ShortFest move on to bigger and better things such as being nominated for an Academy Award. This year, the selections are wide-ranging with varying themes from love to the horrors of war. Here are my picks to help you enjoy the fest.

Dame Judi Dench stars in this funny and smart look at the world of social media. Directed by Chris Foggin, .Friend Request Pending. is part of the Opening Night: Make .Em Laugh and Modern Communication lineups. You will laugh and fall in love with this movie. Wait until you see Dench toss online acronyms like Lol and Omg. Even .The Avengers.. Loki aka Tom Hiddleston »
