You Tube Goes Indie

If you're tiring of You Tube's usual fare of dancing toddlers, inane teenage pranksters, Star Wars parodies, and homemade political campaign commercials then it's newest offering "The Screening Room" might be what you're looking for.

"The Screening Room" presents independent short films from all over the world to internet users. Every 2 weeks 4 new short films are added. It's like a mini-film festival. So far I've only watched one, very charming Danish animated film called "The Danish Poet" narrated by Liv Ullman. Other films introduced this week include "Love and War" a Swedish production billed as "the world's first animated opera," and "Are You the Favorite Person of Anybody?" featuring John C. Reilly asking passersby that intriguing question.
