The 5th annual Walla Walla Movie Crush celebrates the most intoxicating blend of American short cinema over the course of three days (July 9-11, 2021). Once again, the festival will showcase narratives, documentaries, animation, music videos, and experimental films grouped in themed packages and will showcase more than 100 new shorts from OscarĀ®-winners, household names, rising stars, and wunderkinds.

Movies will screen in hour-long blocks at the Gesa Power House Theatre: Friday July 9, 6-10PM; Saturday, July 10, 11AM-5PM and 7-10PM, and Sunday, July 11, 12-5PM and 7-10PM.

The Sunday evening session will feature up to ten brand-new short films created specifically for the Walla Walla Movie Crush. These "Challenge" films will be created by a pantheon of talents. The "Challenge" screening will be followed immediately by an awards ceremony during which top honors will be bestowed in accordance with the wishes of a jury of award-winning actors, screenwriters, and filmmakers.
