Starting January 1st, the so-called 'Godfather' of avant-garde cinema, Jonas Mekas will podcast one short film per day, for a full year. If you can't wait till January here are 2 of Mekas's films to tide you over: Zefiro Torna and Hare Krishna. Or see the 40 short films being shown at a gallery in New York. [Via this NPR report, which, if you're already familiar with Mekas and his work, is likely the most interesting link here.]

I saw "Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania" at the Filmoteca in Madrid last year and really was blown away. I had read about his films but that was the first I had seen. It was almost shot like a home movie but the editing of it was masterful.
