Film festivals present myriad opportunities both for the film screened, as well as its director. This has proven true with three of Green’s documentaries beginning with his 2010 short, Between the Upper Lip and Nasal Passageway, which premiered at Denver’s Festivus Film Festival where it won Best Short Doc. Thanks to the annual “Movember” phenomenon as well as the organization How to Grow a Moustache, the film’s run effectively continues to this day. In 2013, Green’s first feature documentary, Circle the Wagen, sold out its world premiere at the historic Guild Theater in Albuquerque, with a fleet of vintage VW busses lining Route 66 out front. It would win the Dennis Hopper “Guerrilla Award” and is distributed by Devolver Digital Films. His latest feature documentary chronicles the “smallest professional basketball team in the world,” composed of recognizable-but-typecast dwarf actors in 1980’s Los Angeles. The Hollywood Shorties, received its world premiere at SXSW in March 2016 and is now available on Netflix in addition to other VOD platforms.
