On June 25th, WIFTA will honor the outstanding work of women filmmakers. The 2014 WIFTA Short Film Showcase, which begins at 7p at Landmark Art Cinema, promises to be an entertaining evening, offering a potpourri of why we love movies: comedy, drama, documentary and experimental/animation all packed in seven must-see films.

You won’t want to miss exceptional women-centric films being showcased this year! Here's a look at the line up...
