Family Shorts Films: Your Stories, Your Family, Our Lens


Since 2006, Family Shorts Films has been working with families, entrepreneurs, and spirited non-profits to bring their stories to life. Led by director-producer, Tom Kurlander, with decades of entertainment experience in Los Angeles and New York, Family Shorts delivers cinematic “hollywood-style” movies tailor made for each occasion or event.

Family Shorts Films mainly focuses on families; special events, milestone occasions, oral histories, as well as films tailored to meet the distinct needs of our clients, such as a series of short ongoing interviews with expectant moms and newborn parents and grandparents. 

The team at Family Shorts works to highlight the personalities that make each celebration special, collaborating intimately with clients to infuse unique qualities into their films.  Recent work includes collaborations with Pittsburgh Glass Center, Klavon’s Ice Cream Parlor, Pittsburgh Moms Blog and Bill Strickland & Manchester Bidwell, as well as live event films for Bar/Bat Mitzvah receptions, big birthdays and more.

There is no industry equivalent to what we do; so we encourage you to watch our previous work and get a feel for what we offer. You can contact Family Shorts for a FREE CONSULTATION via e-mail [email protected] or on Instagram @familyshorts_films.
