The Rancho Mirage Public Library will host a free screening Thursday night of the best shorts from the 2012 Palm Springs International ShortFest.

The 7 p.m. "Best of ShortFest" screening will be held in association with the Palm Springs International Film Society and reprise winning shorts and audience favorites from the June festival, library spokeswoman Susan Cook said.

"This year's representation of short films comprised over 300 titles from around the world, ranging in length from one minute to 20 minutes," Cook said.

Seating is first-come, first-served at the library's Community Room, 71100 Highway 111.
