Short of the Week Selects Best Short Films of 2013

The website Short of the Week, which has established itself as one of the preeminent online forums for short film discourse, has announced the winners of their 2014 awards, honoring projects that “took the torch of short film and charged into the unknown [and] explored new genres, new characters, new styles, and left an impression upon us we can’t ever shake.”

Of the nine winners, two of them were animated: Fernando Maldonado and Jorge Tereso’s Shave It (see Cartoon Brew’s write-up), and Jonathan Ng’s Requiem for Romance, which was shortlisted by the Academy in last year’s Oscar race.
