About

New York’s Premiere Short Film Showcase

Did you ever watch the Academy Awards when they were presenting the Best “Live Action” Short Film or Best Short Animation Oscars and say to yourself…”where are these films, and why haven’t I seen any of them?”

Well, the “The NY Short Film Concert” presented by Asbury Shorts has been giving people the opportunity to see these little gems in a real theater format on a big screen since 1980.

The Asbury show covers it all: Animation, Comedy, Drama, Documentary and Experimental.

Our show is like a trip to the best film festivals in the world where you sample the elite of the short film genre but without competition and plenty of live surprises!

Asbury is celebrating thirty-one years of screening the world’s most popular short films in the greater New York metropolitan area and at tour stops across the US and Europe!

Asbury NY Features: “The Short Film Concert”

The Short Film Concert is a touring exhibition of award-winning short films specially selected from major US & International film festivals!

The program features films that have won Academy Awards or “Best of Show” honors from such festivals as Sundance, Chicago International, Aspen Shorts,The Berlin Film Fest, Melbourne and South by Southwest.

Asbury’s purpose is to present these highly entertaining films to the general public in a real theater setting and not on an iPod or computer. Live music performance and an occasional celebrity Guest Host enhance the Asbury Shorts experience.
