March 8th – The International Women’s Day

For this special occasion we have selected eight fantastic shorts about Women.

We at Shortly, recognize the International Women’s Day and celebrates the multifaceted nature of women through a curated selection of short films. Each film delves into diverse aspects of the female experience, portraying women of all ages and mindsets. From toxic relationships to unyielding determination, these narratives explore themes such as identity, societal expectations, aging, body image, and grief. The films vividly depict the challenges and joys that women encounter in their lives. As the stories unfold, they present a powerful reminder that women, much like the films themselves, come in every shape, form, and mindset imaginable. Through compelling characters like Susie, Violetta, and Nina, the films capture the intricate tapestry of women’s lives.
