CHECK OUT THE NY TIMES' RAVE REVIEW!

Showcasing a wide variety of story and style, the 2015 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour is an 83-minute theatrical program of six short films that won awards at this year’s Festival, which over the course of its more than 30-year history has been widely considered the premier showcase for short films and the launchpad for many now-prominent independent filmmakers. Including fiction, documentary and animation from around the world, the distinct 2015 program traverses vibrant styles from wild comedy to quiet poetry. Each breaks through its limited timeframe with a high level of artistry and story that will resonate with audiences long after it ends.

From the producers of The House Of The Devil and Cheap Thrills, WE ARE STILL HERE is a tense, frightening, and thoroughly haunting ghost story with amazing effects and creatures.  After their teenage son is killed in a car crash, Paul and Anne move to the New England countryside to try to start a new life. But the grieving couple unknowingly becomes the prey of a family of vengeful spirits that reside in their new home, and before long they discover that the seemingly peaceful town is hiding a terrifyingly dark secret. Now they must find a way to overcome their sorrow and fight back against both the living and dead as the malicious ghosts threaten to pull their souls – and the soul of their lost son – into hell with them.

"More than a mere homage, "We Are Still Here" is the kind of movie you wish you could take back in time with you and project in your favorite 42nd Street grindhouse." - Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com

"The movie never wants for scares. It might actually be the single most terrifying movie of 2015." - Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

"Think of it as an "unmake": an effort to make the new old again." - Charles Bramesco, Movie Mezzanine

"Tautly paced, beautifully acted, and insanely unsettling." - Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
