With all of that time on your hands, especially if you’re part of the millions of people out of work, you might have gotten into baking, learning a foreign language, or even tried to make a comedic short film or sketch.

If you happened to have done the latter (or plan to do so), you’ll be happy to know that Paul Feig’s Powderkeg is looking for such short films/sketches to screen/spotlight as part of their new Shut In Short Films program.
