Screening of short films is a part of “16h Prague Short Film Festival”.
A selection of the festival program’s most joyful films. For instance: an American conversational piece about a visit to the psychoterapist, a British musical about a taxidermist in love, an Australian film about an insistent handyman, and a Swedish musical homage to all the poor horror film characters who don’t live to see the sequel.
