2015 Sundance Spotlight: The Stand-Out Short Films Are..

Trailer for "The Chicken"

The verdict is in on the top short films that stood out on Day 1 of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Our correspondents, Jesse and Steph chose their three favorite short film programs. Check them out:

SMILF / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: Frankie Shaw) — A young single mother struggles to balance her old life of freedom with her new one as mom. It all comes to a head during one particular nap-time when Bridgette invites an old friend over for a visit.

The Chicken / Germany, Croatia (Director and screenwriter: Una Gunjak) — The day-to-day life of a six-year-old girl growing up during unstable times in Sarajevo is shaken up when a chicken joins her family.

World of Tomorrow / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: Don Hertzfeldt) — A little girl is taken on a mind-bending tour of the distant future.
