60 Amazing Short Films

From Hilarious Lost Shopper Parodies to Facial Hair Short Films

— November 24, 2013 — Pop Culture
These amazing short films are dedicated to film lovers everywhere. It's amazing how much a five or 10-minute movie can have an impact on you. Whether it's meant to change your perspective on a certain issue or persuade you to buy a new cologne, these short films took creativity and insight to make.

Another great thing about some of these shorts is that they were made by seemingly average people on their laptops using basic software. There is a skill and an art in being able to convey a powerful or impactful message within a short time span but it's also a great concept for the current generation, whose attention span seems to be getting shorter.

These amazing short films will make you laugh, cry, shake in your boots or freak you out, but they will definitely entertain and inspire you.
