On Screen

How is ShortsTV leading the cause? ShortsTV is creating new opportunities for filmmakers from all minority groups and you can encourage others to join us. On-screen, we’re creating a catalog of top-quality short films featuring minority talent.

These films will be available to theaters across the country for screening prior to mainstream features. Below are ten examples of films featuring minority talent or filmmakers.

    Contrapelo is the story of a proud Mexican barber who is forced to shave the leader of a drug cartel. As he faces the man who is destroying his country, he is confronted by a difficult decision: to become a killer, or to let this man continue to kill. By the end of the shave, the Barber will find out that he and the Capo are not so different.
