Every filmmaker starts with short films. Here's 25 by some of cinema's greatest directors, available online.

For our students from The Cinema School and GFS LA, these are a must watch. Which of these short films did you like best? Comment below!

GFS. Benefiting the world one story at a time.
Introduction
At Ghetto Film School, our mission is to educate, develop and celebrate the next generation of great American storytellers.

We accomplish this mission through three areas of business: The Fellows Program (a 15-month immersion into cinematic storytelling), Digital Bodega (a student-operated production company) and The Cinema School (the nation's first film high school).
