Get Shorty

One inevitable fact of summer: the warmer it gets, the shorter the shorts. Instead of being a creep and gawking at exposed gams, focus your peepers on the short films from local filmmakers that’ll be featured in Theater 13’s Short Shorts with Short Leash on Saturday, May 24.

The fourth annual outing of Short Shorts brings together a smattering of Arizona-born flicks including an adaptation of the Aesop tale The Farmer and The Stork, Brandon Barnard’s Paint Life Beautiful, a documentary about Phoenix-born artist Joseph “Sentrock” Perez, and Beezleborb, an animated short by Ryne Gessel. Short Leash Hot Dogs will be on hand offering up their gourmet take on the ballpark classic while live music from local bands fills the air.

Theater 13 presents Short Shorts at Stinkweeds, 12 West Camelback Road, from 6 to 9 p.m. Admission is free, and this event is all-ages. Visit for more information.
