In less than a week from now the 2010 Sundance Film Festival will get underway, and a few of us here at Cinematical (Scott Weinberg, Eric D. Snider, Kevin Kelly, Erik Childress and yours truly) will be heading to sunny Park City, Utah with one mission: to bring back word on what could be some of the hottest (and most worthwhile) independent films of 2010. While we continue our Sundance Primer series through this week and next, we also thought it might be a good time to throw some love at all the short films premiering at this year's festival (because once things get started, the poor shorts always seem to get shafted). Yes, this year's short film lineup does include films from Spike Jonze and James Franco -- and I'm sure you'll see coverage of those two all over these internets -- but what about the others?

We'll definitely try to get you some coverage of the shorts once the festival begins, but in the meantime a whole bunch of them have put up trailers online (and, keep this under your hat, but in some cases you can watch the entire film). In order to make it so you don't have tons upon tons of videos to scroll through, we decided to split this up into two parts. You can check out the first part here, in which we went over the U.S. short films. Today we'll bring you trailers, teasers and footage from the shorts screening in the following three categories: International Dramatic, Documentary and Animated. There's not a whole lot out there for the international shorts, so if you're a filmmaker for an international short and you have a trailer online, definitely contact us and we'll include it.

Head after the jump to watch the second round of trailers ...
