Special red carpet guests from your favorite genre films and TV shows will be helping us celebrate!
“Laboratory Conditions” (USA, 17 min. Dir. Jocelyn Stamat) A physician investigating a missing body disrupts an unlawful experiment.
“Lady M” (U.K., 12 min. Dir. Tammy Riley Smith) Actress Margot Collins played Lady Macbeth to great acclaim in her youth. Now in her 50s, she is offered the role of one of the witches. But one should never underestimate the spirit of the play to conjure black magic, to summon mishaps and mischief, nor the power of a formidable older woman to get what she wants.
“Bride of Frankie” (USA, 19 min. Dir. Devi Snively) In this feminist nod to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, a not-so-mad scientist builds a mate for her mentor’s lonely creature with electrifying, and deadly, results.
“Creswick” (Australia, 10 min. Dir. Natalie James) Sam’s fear of her childhood home is brought to light when her aging father claims there is another presence in the house.
“Skin Deep” (USA, 7 min. Dir. Elizabeth Serra) Sisters Karen and Vivian are 1960s housewives. Under their sophisticated veneer lurks seething hatred. Both women strive for dominance in an epic battle for sibling supremacy.
“Instinct” (USA, 18 min. Dir. Maria Arida) A psycho-sexual thriller about Isabelle, a lonely gallery owner who meets a dangerously seductive performance artist and discovers they have more in common than expected. Will Isabelle allow herself to let Camila in without giving in to her true nature?
“Ovum” (USA, 8 min. Dir. Cidney Hue) A woman must make a hard choice after a mind-bending procedure.
“The Drop In” (USA/Canada, 13 min. Dir. Naledi Jackson) A hairdresser has a challenging day when a mysterious visitor from her past arrives for a drop-in appointment.
“The Agency” (U.K., 10 min. Dir. Macarena Montero) The Agency is the best place to purchase a husband, and Mrs. Hold thought it would be fun to head down and get a new one today.
“C U Later Tuesday” (USA, 5 min. Dir. Anca Vlasan) This year’s cutest romantic comedy is all about finding love in an unexpected basement.
