A friend asked me to blog about my top ten films because he wanted to watch them. I didn’t think people would have time to watch that many in a row, but here they are – my top ten picks from the last six festivals that are free to watch online: 1 from Canada, 3 from the US, 5 from Europe, and 1 from Australia.

AnimationGranny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty (Ireland) – from our 2010 fest

ComedyInstead of Abracadabra (Sweden) – from our 2009 fest and also 2010 in the Oscar Live Action package. This is a very low-res version. An HD version can be purchased on iTunes for $2.99 (if you don’t already have iTunes on your computer, you’ll need to download it first; when the program is open, type the title in the top right search bar; or if you want to browse short films, click on Movies at the top, choose Short Films as the category on the right, click on Short Films:G-L at the bottom right, and go through the alphabetical list until you find it).
