Four Dutch Films screen at Palm Springs International ShortFest – June 21-27

The 28th annual Palm Springs International ShortFest returns to hold all of its screenings in-theatre at the Camelot Theatres (Palm Springs Cultural Center) from June 21-27.


When a group of rowdy teenagers trek into an isolated forest, they discover mushroom creatures that turn out to be an unexpected force of nature.

Constructed as a heartfelt introspective letter to the filmmaker’s deceased grandfather, the film questions the continuous pattern of movement among Yemenis in diaspora.

A HOWLING DOG  – International Premiere
One quiet and motionless night, the isolated inhabitants of an apartment complex unexpectedly find each other.

UNDERGROWTH  – World Premiere
Two brothers and their father live in the woods, far from modern society. As their father tries to teach them how to become lumberjacks, the boys are stuck in a constant loop of fighting and testing each other’s limits.
