The 23rd Asbury Shorts Show of New York will present it’s popular “Best of the U.S. Festivals” short film program at the historic Baronet Theater in Asbury Park, NJ on August 30th and 31st beginning at 8:00pm.


Washington Mutual and Bruce Donaldson Real Estate are co-sponsors of this evening of outstanding independent short filmmaking.


Asbury Shorts, a touring exhibition of the world’s most entertaining short films, is based in New York City (strictly coincidental that their name is the same as the host city for these shows).

The “Best of the U.S.” program features shorts previously honored with a “Best of Show” or “Audience Choice” award at other United States film festivals such as The Aspen Shorts Festival, Sundance, New England Film Festival, The Atlanta Film & Video Festival and Slamdance to name only a few.


Highlights of the program include two Sundance Finalists, “Gulp,” and “In God We Trust,” from Los Angeles TV commercial director Jason Reitman and international film festival circuit favorite “The Bloody Olive,” from Belgium. Richard Doherty’s multi-award winning favorite, “My Chorus.”  will also be featured. The best in short comedy, drama, animation, experimental as well as selections that defy description will round out the 2-hour showcase. Asbury Shorts has presented this program over the past year in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Lake Placid, Birmingham and New York City.


The Baronet Theater is located at205 4th Avenue in Asbury Park.

Tickets are $10 general admission. For more details or to reserve tickets please call 917-612-2928
