Four Films and a Conversation With a Director in Short Cuts Film Festival at Darien Arts Center

The Darien Arts Center will host the one-night Short Cuts Film Festival, a collection of award-winning short narrative and documentary films curated from the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. — an announcement from Darien Arts Center

Screenings will take place at 7 p.m., Friday, Feb. 2 in the DAC Weatherstone Studio, followed by a live, in-person conversation between Jacob Krupnick, director of one of the featured films, and Nancy Diamond, producer and host of Short Cuts. Krupnick, an award-winning filmmaker based in New York, focuses on creating stories from unexpected points of view, using dance and movement to expand the idea of what an adventure, a love story or a social commentary looks like. His featured film, Then Comes the Body, follows what happens when a video of kids dancing in the rain goes viral.
