ShortsHD, The Short Movie Channel and distributor of Oscar nominated shorts, will make available for pre-order a collection of six of actor-filmmaker Matthew Modine's short films on iTunes in 54 countries as of Wednesday, downloadable June 4. Three of the six shorts premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, but have never been commercially released. ITunes will release "The Short Films of Matthew Modine" collection the same way they do features.

Modine ("Full Metal Jacket," "Short Cuts"), who has created a wide range of shorts in various genres over the last decade, was given the 2013 ShortsHD Visionary Director award. He likes making shorts, he says, because the medium "frees a filmmaker to experiment with new ideas, stories, and cinematic techniques," and he hopes that people who see the shorts will "share and discuss the content and ideas found within my films." 

The actor was most recently seen in Christopher Nolan’s "The Dark Knight Rises," and plays former Apple CEO John Scully in the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic "jOBS" opposite Ashton Kutcher.

The ShortsHD "Short Films of Matthew Modine" on iTunes include a selection of films that have played at global festivals, the Museum of Modern Art’s New Directors/New Films, and the Tribeca Film Festival. His latest, the controversial "Jesus Was a Commie" (2011), won five film festival prizes including the Founders Prize for Best Short Film at Michael Moore's Traverse City Film Festival. Three shorts from the group played at Sundance: "When I Was A Boy" (co-director, Todd Field, 1993),"Smoking" (written and narrated by David Sedaris, 1995) and "Ecce Pirate" (1996). Also in the collection are "To Kill An American" (2005) and "I Think I Thought" (2007). More details on the shorts are below.
