It isn’t the length of the runtime; it’s the motion of the picture. Case in point: the 15th-annual Milwaukee Short Film Festival, celebrating some of the best up-and-coming talent both local and worldwide. Short films are trending toward a lack of levity, so expect material that’s a bit grimmer than in years past.
Oct. 25-26. Milwaukee Art Museum 700 N. Art Museum Dr., 414-224-3200, mam.org
