10 short films that will make your Sabbath day
By: Rebbie Groesbeck //
People often ask–what do single Mormons DO on weekends? While I can’t answer for the group as a whole, I can tell you that for one weekend of the year, single Mormons in Southern California gather for the Young Single Adult LDS Film Festival.
It’s an open invitation festival, where everyone is invited to create a short film about pretty much any topic, as long as it’s under ten minutes and G-rated.
I’ve compiled a list of my personal favorites over the last few years. If you’ve ever wondered what people do for fun without alcohol, look no further.
1. The Most Interesting Mormon in the World.
I can’t imagine what his “I’m a Mormon” video is like.
2. Jane Austen’s Fight Club
Everyone loves a good chick fight.
3. Elders will be Sisters
Harvard Sailing Club-Mormon style.
4. Stephens & Smith Present: How to be Men
The art of manliness-as taught by two MorMen.
5. Chalk Face
There’s just something wonderful about people getting hit in the face with chalk in slow motion.
6. Time for Teens
When the cool kids ask you to come to their rager, JUST SAY NO!
7. Sad, Happy, Sad….Happy.
Some people head straight to the bar after being fired. Mormons head elsewhere.
8. Urban Climber
Winner of 2012’s Festival. Pretty ridiculous.
Winner of 2013’s Festival. Pretty terrifying.
10. Tom Cruise on Home Teaching
And my all-time favorite.
