The Cincinnati World Cinema is back with its rescheduled Shorts Fest. Each night presents a different slate of acclaimed shorts from across the world in every imaginable genre. Proof? Try John Harden's Le Vie D'un Chien (The Life of a Dog), a playful, aesthetically unique and oddly poignant look at what happens when humans take a drug called K-9- which, appropriately enough, turns them into dogs.

Each night will also include post-film discussions led by Cincinnati-based filmmaking team Mirepoix Pictures, whose Held in Sway will screen on Oct. 22. Shot in Cincinnati, Mirepoix's five-minute short is long on poetics and marked by a stylized visual approach that not only impressed the judges of the 48 Hour Film Festival but also the Cannes Film Festival, where it screened earlier this year. 6:30 p.m. Oct. 21 and 22. $9; $7 for members/ETA/Start/students/military.
