Ann Walker and Kira Wojack return to curate another award-winning Short Films Program, this time with a twist: nothing goes as planned for our heroes (or anti-heroes, as the case may be). From the surprising to the serendipitous, these sometimes serious, sometimes comical developments throw a wrench in the works, but all of these short films will have you cheering on our protagonists as they struggle to adapt to unexpected turns of events and the ensuing complications — which are often of their own making. This hilarious and heartwarming program features three 2017 Academy Award nominees and one Academy Award winner.
