Trek 183
Alain Alfaro, Staten Island NY, USA. Narrative Short, Sci-Fi, 15:00

World Premiere!

Shore Thing
Anthony Lovari, James Hill, Queens Village, NY, USA. Narrative Short, 30:00

World Premiere!

A series of shark attacks in New York waters not otherwise known for activity are occurring (a netted beach in Coney Island, a freshwater lake in Lake George, a muddy creek). While baffled scientists are trying to figure out how and why, a college student named Leo, who is failing marine biology, discovers a pattern that resembles true life attacks that occurred in New Jersey over 90 years ago. In the meantime, an investigative journalist who is hungry for respect, begins his own prodding into the investigation, as scientists argue theories. The ending is a surprise twist that is virtually impossible to guess, but ends up making perfect sense. 'Shore Thing' comprises suspense of nature at its most primitive and is laced with intellectual humor.
