“Extremely Shorts 11”

It’s no surprise that Aurora Picture Show has found success going after the smaller end of that spectrum with its extremely popular “Extremely Shorts” series, which screens teeny tiny films from around the world (each is three minutes or less). The latest installment coincides with the film house’s ten-year anniversary, and to celebrate, they’ll screen “Extremely Shorts 11,” packed with a curated collection of new films, throughout the weekend. Veteran juror and Village Voice film critic Ed Halter will be in attendance to offer his expert opinion, and following the screening on Sunday evening there will be a celebratory picnic (short films and beer, come on, you can’t beat that). 800 Aurora. For information, call 713-868-2101 or visit www.aurorapictureshow.org. 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday; 5 p.m. Sunday. $10 to $12.
Sat., June 28, 6 & 8 p.m.; Sun., June 29, 5 & 6-9 p.m., 2008
