When: Wed., July 20, 9:30 p.m. 2016
The St. Louis Filmmakers Festival comedy shorts block features a wide range of short films, from quick-hits (Zak Zych's two-minute "Snottington University") to longer pieces that tell a complete story, such as Joseph Puleo's "Top Son," a fourteen-minute mini-epic that follows a 30-year-old Tom Cruise impersonator who tries to hit the big time by entering a talent competition. In between are a noir drama about the Easter Bunny (Seth Ferranti's "Easter Bunny Assassin") and Michelle Davidson's "The Perfect Note," which is a musical about a magical piano. The comedy shorts program starts at 9:30 p.m. tonight at the Landmark Tivoli Theatre (6350 Delmar Boulevard, University City; www.cinemastlouis.org). Tickets are $10 to $13.
