The Next Testament

Directed by Mark McDannald

Runtime 19 min

It's been a long time since Jesus last carried out His father's ambitions, and the years of inactivity have left Him washed up and dreaming about what might have been. God's day of wrath is finally at hand, however, and it's one more job for Jesus, one more day on earth if He can just pull Himself together.


 

Knock On My Door

Runtime 10 min

A Knock on My Door chronicles the life of the Director’s father who as a courageous teenager emigrates to the United States where he achieves extraordinary success until a buried past demands a reckoning.




Revenge of the Fly

Directed by Tony White

Runtime 2 minutes

A 2D-animated King Kong style giant fly exerts its revenge on those who seek to forceably remove him from Seattle's Space Needle!




Shotrocity

Directed by Brian Burroughs

Runtime 10 minutes

At a time in his life when junior sadist Jack Marbellous should rightfully be thrown into an asylum,
bizarre circumstances converge to instead encourage his destructive ways, and propel him into a
position of authority and influence. Be afraid!





 

The War Profiteers

Directed by Benjamin Markus

 

In a war torn city, a totalitarian dictator is holed up inside a seedy bordello where he and his henchmen engage in sordid acts of limbo-like repetition. When an unknown force enters the room, peace is restored, if only for an instant.

Blanket P. Snugglemop

Directed by Paige Bradley

Runtime 1 minute 1 second

Charcoal drawing lines come together to form a girl with a ghost for a head and a blanket for a dress. She pulls a red thread out of her cave of a mouth, while the narration speaks to who she is and what she can do.



Abuelas

Directed by Afarin Eghbal

Runtime 9 minutes

In a small apartment in Buenos Aires, an old woman eagerly awaits the birth of her grandchild and all the joys of becoming a grandmother. However, horrific circumstances means she will be forced to wait over 30 years. Using real-life testimonials this animated-documentary raises issues of memory, repression and loss.



We are Going to be Poor Forever

Directed by Jeremiah Jones

Runtime 13 minutes

Festival Premiere

Jeremiah Jones’ We Are Going To Be Poor Forever, is an experimental video work which plays at the borders of animation, performance, and the virtual. The video follows two of Jeremiah’s hand made rabbit dolls, as they walk looking for a place to sleep. While traveling they meet a cast of characters who reflect on the relationships and ideas that have shaped their “post-something” world. These characters rarely infer meaning on their experiences; instead, they suggest questions without providing us answers.

Little Deaths

An animated reflection on the experience of orgasm, based on taped interviews.



Boatman

Directed by Joel Leaon, Vladimir Goryachev

Runtime 5 minutes

World Premiere

A solitary man pulls a boat across a vast desert on a quest for water.
