It sort of reads like a seventh-grade math problem: 428 short films submitted from 36 different countries, with the 10 final selections screening 532 times in 173 cities across five continents in one week. Tucson gets its turn on Thursday, Sept. 24—the night this issue hits the streets—when the 10 finalists will all try to earn your vote. Highlights include Mozambique, a touching and hopeful documentary by teenager Alcides Soares about his efforts to reunite with his siblings after Africa’s rampant AIDS epidemic left them orphans; and Love Child, silly surreality from Sweden about a platinum-blonde moppet trying to deal with hurt feelings after her parents begin lavishing loads of attention on a cat.
