The intent of the Arts in Film is to present films that inform and inspire, that provide insight into the inner workings of art forms that are enjoyed in their finished product, but the process is hidden. Here are some of the very best short films that showcase The Arts in Film - includes Currencies, Fading Nocturne, Molat and Molat, Syncretic Noise, The Teacup, The Whirl and White.
