Monday Short: 'The Mouse That Soared'

This next film in our Monday Shorts series, curated by TFF Head of Shorts Programming Sharon Badal, is the online world premiere of 'The Mouse That Soared' by Kyle Bell, in which the filmmaker tells us the story of a mouse's special past.

Every Monday, TFF Head of Shorts Programming Sharon Badal shares a short film that she thinks deserves a bigger audience. In this week's selection, two birds feeling blue about their “empty nest” discover the meaning of family in this animated short film. Keep an eye out for the cleverly concealed homage to classic films!
