Watch Shorts from the Chicago International Film Festival for Free

"Life Is Short," the title of the short films program at this year's Chicago International Film Festival reminds us, and CIFF and MUBI aim to sweeten it with a sampling of a few of the films you can watch for free.

When Ghost, about a man hiding out in an empty house, premiered in Cannes, daazo interviewed director Ma Dahci.

Shot on 8mm and then edited digitally, Alaric Rocha's Winter is about a prisoner on a chain gang who's dreaming of escape when his chain breaks.

Jonas Rothlaender's The Shirt (viewable everywhere but in France) is built on a moment of discomfort between a father (62) and a son (28).

CIFF describes Noam Ellis's Narkis (viewable everywhere except Israel) as a "subtle tale of one girl's sexual awakening in the sultry summer heat."
