“By the end of LSFF, you get a feeling of progress being made. Houston is a reflection of its population, and that magnificent gumbo of humanity is rising to the top through festivals like this. New international voices are being seen and heard, and LSFF is doing its part to spread the word. Without a doubt the crowds will only get larger.”

“Houston’s Literally Short Film Festival, running Wednesday through June 10 mostly at Literal Magazine’s event space in west Houston, wants to help remedy the situation by celebrating the short subject as much more than an afterthought. ‘There’s something to be said for short films,’ said Lorís Simón Salum, the festival’s founder, by phone. ‘A story told in that amount of time has a different impact.’”
