Z-Fest Film Festival: Best of Fest

Although the flicks showcased at the Z-Fest Film Festival are well under the typical two-hour runtime, they're still very entertaining. The event, now in its fourth year, features seven-minute shorts made by local filmmakers, both aspiring and established. Past entrants have included bits about dating mishaps, an eerie and action-packed take on "Jabberwocky," and a casually humorous piece exploring the harsh world of the werewolf. Folks can screen films online before events, and audiences are encouraged to vote for their favorites. Winners will be awarded cash prizes, as well as equipment that could make their next work even better. There will be an after party each night. The best and brightest films will then be screened at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 14, at the Mall of America, followed by a brief awards show and an afterparty in the Star Bar.
