Tales of resistance and resilience, the short films of the 3rd Annual FFFS are as beautifully complex as they are diverse. Stories about immigration, displacement, and our environment, often reduced to one minute, one-sided, or oversimplified representations in the news, tv, and film, can quickly become a tangled web of misinformation and misrepresentation. The films of the 3rd Annual FFFS take us deeper than ever before, inviting us to rethink our perceptions. Represented this year are films from El Paso and Juarez, Santa Fe, New Mexico, Syria, Lithuania, and Australia.
