Featuring a mix of live-action and animation, these eight festival favorite fiction shorts from around the globe skew towards the absurd and the hilarious. In “Setup, Punch,” Elijah Wood stars as a standup comic putting on the most daring act of his life alongside Alia Shawkat, and “RPG OKC” finds two 8-bit video game characters entering the weird world of online dating. Willy returns to his naturalist roots and goes on an epic pantsless journey of self-discovery in “Oh Willy…” and there’s nothing like a dip in “The River” on a hot summer day.
