Dark Matters Film Festival returns with its annual salute to short films centered around the theme of darkness. Short shockers from around the world (America, Australia, Spain, Ireland, Canada, the Philippines) are grouped into three programming blocks. At 4pm is a collection of dark sci-fi and fantasy. At 6pm is a selection of cutting-edge animation. At 8pm it's the final block concentrating directly on horror. Blocks are approximately 80 minutes each.
