SpelingError's Top 100 Favorite Short Films


Very impressive! I really enjoyed the visuals and sound. The meaning behind it all is a bit over my head, but Ito manages to keep the intensity and energy going for a full 8 minutes and never feels repetitive. Excellent short film.
I got Captain Terror hooked on his films some time ago. I'm a huge fan of his style.

The Burden (2017, Niki Lindroth von Bahr)

Another amazing short I've never seen before! Thank you!

The House Is Black (1963, Forugh Farrokhzad)

I'm out. I'm too squeamish. 😬

Meshes of the Afternoon (1943, Maya Deren and Alexander Hammid)

YAY! My personal favorite!

I still can't believe this was made in 1943. There's so much here that would fit right in with 60's and 70's experimental films.

A surreal, cyclical dreamworld, of a person trapped in a monotonous existence, desperately seeking escape.

I imagine this choice may raise some eyebrows, but this genuinely is my #1. I'll be happy to share some thoughts on it if anyone's curious.

Thank you so much for sharing all of these! There were so many is never heard of and really enjoyed.
