Short Circuit - Tour of Short Films is a companion program to the Southern Circuit. Short Circuit spotlights outstanding short films (under 45 minutes) by filmmakers living in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

Short films selected for the 2007-2008 Short Circuit tour will serve as the “opening acts” for the filmmakers touring on the 2007-2008 Southern Circuit - Tour of Independent Filmmakers. The short films selected for this tour will be seen by audiences in communities throughout the South.

Filmmakers whose work is selected for the 2007-2008 Short Circuit will receive a $200 honorarium. In return, these filmmakers agree to participate in the Southern Circuit blog and podcast interviews to further promote the tour and to engage online audiences in discussion of the films.
