1. SWIMMING IN YOUR SKIN AGAIN
11 min | Inventive American filmmaker Terence Nance’s experimental short is based on the work of musician and producer Norvis Jr, a fellow audio-visual auteur. Set in the hot and humid swamps, churches and coastal oases of South Florida, this magical, surreal tale engulfs pop culture and spiritual ritualism, channeling the nurturing convictions of love and relationships. This short played at Rotterdam and Sundance Film Festivals.

2. UNIVITELLIN
15 min | A modern Romeo and Juliet meet on a city bus. Of course they fall head over heels in love. Life is great when you’re in love, however unfortunately, your fate has already been sealed. A classic story in a far-from-classic, fresh, colorful, and exceptionally effective reworking.

25 New Faces: Mike Anderson, Ryan Dickie, Abigail Horton
New Media Ltd is a directing collective consisting of Mike Anderson, Ryan Dickie and Abigail Horton (all in attendance). One evening, partially submerged in a swimming pool and cooling off after a hard day as crew on a feature film, the trio engaged in a particularly emphatic and seemingly intelligent conversation about Carl Sagan: from these fertile ashes the phoenix that was to become New Media Ltd sprang forth.  They are based in Brooklyn, NY and Portland, OR, and represented by Pulse Films.

3. CLUB POLICY
10 min | A competitive couple serves up tragedy on the squash court when someone doesn’t abide by club policy.

4. YEASAYER ‘I AM CHEMISTRY’ & ‘SILLY ME’
8 min | Two children and an astronaut find fear and change on Planets X and Y in sequential animated music videos for the band Yeasayer.

5. NIGHTSTALKER
10 min | A young woman and her karaoke date are poisoned by haunted takeout food and sucked to an alternate dimension of clay where only she can save them. 

Filmmakers in attendance.
