On the heels of the annual Oscar Nominated Short Films program, ShortsHD presents Stars in Shorts, a collection of short films featuring some of the world’s biggest actors.

Dame Judi Dench is a neophyte in the complicated landscape of Internet dating in "Friend Request Pending." Colin Firth is an unusually needy neighbor to Keira Knightley in "Steve." Lily Tomlin gets lost on her way to a funeral in "Procession." Jason Alexander is a screenwriter at the end of his rope in the musical short "Not Your Time."

The program also includes short films starring Kenneth Branagh, Julia Stiles, and others.
