Miyagi Prefecture’s capital, Sendai, was the largest city to suffer major damage from the Great East Japan Earthquake last year, so it makes sense that its long-running short-film festival would turn its attention to the disaster and recovery efforts.

The 2012 edition of the Sendai Short Film Festival is being held this weekend, from Saturday through Monday, and features dozens of Japanese and new foreign films, each under 20 minutes in length, and each related in some way to the events of March 11, 2011.
