FILM SCHOOL SHORTS return to Alaska Public Media starting Thursday, August 6 at 10:30 p.m.

This very well may be our best season yet. Whether it’s a touching comedy set to a Harry Nilsson soundtrack (Humpty) or a gripping period drama that took home the Gold at the 2014 Student Academy Awards (Above the Sea), these colorful and provocative short films rival the latest multiplex features … in a fraction of the time.

The series kicks off with FINAL ASCENT. The Kármán Line. New York University. Olivia Coleman (Broadchurch, The Iron Lady, Hot Fuzz) stars as a mother who is hit by an unusual condition that causes her to lift off the ground at a slow but ever increasing rate.

  • The series starts Thursday, August 6, then picks up after our Fall Pledge Drive on Thursday, August 20.
