    I've been rewatching some of the "Short Cinema" releases with my girlfriend lately, and I've been craving more. Sadly, "Short Cinema" died a few years ago, but has anything come to take its place? I have volumes 1-11, but skipped on the International releases since they appeared to be made up of stuff I had already seen.

    Does anyone know of something similar to the "Short Cinema" series; short films, documentaries and animations on a disc. I just ordered the "More" SE disc the other day; that was a highlight from the "Short" series for me.

    No idea about a replacement, but I was always disappointed that they never got the Architect's Journal off the ground.

    Best of Resfest is pretty good. They only have put out three volumes (and I believe the first may be OOP now)

    I love short films, but it seems that dvd distribution just wasn't doing as well as they hoped. I think there is a major future for shorts in the realm of itunes and the like.

    I have been filling out my Shorts collection, but some of them are fetching a bit more than I would be willing to pay.

    The first Short Cinema was one of the first DVDs I bought, and I bought all the other volumes as they came out. I never heard what caused its demise, but I wish somebody would bring it back.
