A tradition now 11 years running, UnionDocs hosts Shorts After the Flaherty on Saturday, June 22nd at 8pm. We’re thrilled to host seminar programmer Shai Heredia who will be in attendance. Guests of the Flaherty will share their films alongside three short films chosen in response to this year’s theme Action. These films chosen in response will be selected by three young, exciting and emerging curators and film programmers in attendance at this year’s Seminar. Toast Flaherty 2019 with one final screening and hurrah! We’ll have a brief post-screening discussion with artists and programmers in attendance and a reception to follow in UnionDocs backyard garden.
