The Best of Show Me Shorts Volume 1 and 2 bring together 32 of our Show Me Shorts Film Festival favourites from over the years.

These beautifully crafted shorts traverse an eclectic range of subjects, from the worst of speed dating, through to killer hamsters and an animated retelling of the SS Wairarapa disaster.

This is what short filmmaking is all about: incredible stories brought together in two perfect little packages.

So sit back and enjoy the stories that New Zealanders, and our neighbours across the ditch, continue to tell about our humanity, history and the perils of ouija boards…
