Films showing include:
Monster, Me (Milt Klingensmith)
10 min. A young girl mysteriously transforms into something she will learn to love, if it doesn’t kill her first.
Juggle & Cut (Caleb Slain)
10 min. In the autumn of 1998, a profound tragedy echoed through a small Michigan farming community and twisted the well laid plans of a young prodigy in strange and inspired ways.
Paranormal Probe (Anjalika Lobo)
10 min. The destinies of two kids and the star of a failing ghost-hunter show collide in this quirky coming-of-age narrative.
Space for Rent (Jeremy Knickerbocker)
12 min. Space For Rent is a short documentary which examines the creative act and process of reacting to spaces in architecture, as it manifests itself in both performance and sculpture. Street Skateboarders are largely reacting to the excesses created by industrialization and corporate capitalism.
