Trailblazers, movers and shakers, characters with conviction — these shorts provide a glimpse into the lives of people who are boldly challenging norms and expectations in the hopes of changing the narrative or writing a new story all together.
Whether through observation, advocacy, or intervention, there’s always an element of wonder when engaging with the natural world. These shorts underscore the power of, and our dynamic relationship with, the great outdoors, from London’s high street to the mountains of Colorado.
Even seemingly simple situations are layered with complexity. These shorts feature characters who explore and experiment with the complex nature of their identities — pushing boundaries, challenging stereotypes, and reveling in the beauty of how things are or could be.
A collection of short films by outstanding FAVS (Film and Video Studies) students at our partner school, George Mason University.
