The All American High School Film Festival is back with its 2014 selection of impressive shorts made by brilliant young filmmakers.
Every year, the festival honors shorts from across genres, and this year the field features some vastly different movies that share the common thread of being made by filmmakers way ahead of their peers.
Check out a selection of featured films below!

""Aftermath" - by Lucas Dudley and Emma Bradford

""Buster was a Man" - by Adam McArthur
