Every year PCFF welcomes compilations of the best short films from other major festivals around the country. We’re especially delighted to be able to bring to Providence the best of the Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival in “Circus Circus”: short animations, live action, documentaries, and experimental films.

A determined tinkerer builds a vending machine with some surprising inner workings. The world’s largest stop-motion animation follows a fisherman out at sea. Some magical books lovingly guide a book lover through life. A generous light warms a struggling flower. Meet some circus cats and their funny and caring handlers. Unexpected manners emerge when an old lady and a young man are both hungry for cookies!
