Bookshorts' Moving Stories now
BookShorts are moving stories
...three minutes of filmic storytelling,
plugged in to today's culture seekers...
a new genre of entertainment.
  BookShorts are three minute films, adapted from fiction or non-fiction, broadcast simultaneously through many outlets--television and the Internet, in booksotres and theatres, at film festivals and live readings--to coincide with a book's publication. Each BookShort has additional behind-the-scenes features which, together with the film, explore the terrain of the book, characters, author and filmmakers.
