Top 10 Short Movies Ranked 1996 You Must Watch

Unwrapped’s Offical 10 Best Short Movies of 1996 list is finally here (I know it’s been too long). At Unwrapped, we have had the entire team, which part of the employment criteria is a love of movies, make a list of The 10 Best Short Movies of 1996. We then put our heads together for over six months and have come up with what I believe are the most significant, most watchable Short Movies of 1996. Ultimately this is my opinion, and I am open to feedback; however, I am pretty sure any true movie fan will agree with me. (Yes, that’s designed to irritate you, so you comment.)
