Director Spike Jonze's 30-minute short film I'm Here, which played as part of the Short Films program (number 1, in case you're here and want to catch it), will be airing on IFC sometime later this year, according to EW. The ink probably hasn't dried on the deal yet, or it's waiting to be written, but this is a fantastic little short film that needs to be seen by a wider audience.

Jonze admits he was partly inspired by Shel Silverstein's book The Giving Tree, and it's a lovelorn robot tale starring Andrew Garfield and Sienna Guillory, which you can read all about right here on Cinematical. Or, if you really want to build up some anticipation for this, check out the trailer here. I'm glad the IFC is putting shorts on their channel, and I hope they pick up a few more from the festival, including the incredible Logorama, and the extremely awesome Six Dollar Fifty Man. Come on IFC, in for a penny, in for a pound.
