Somewhere Between Here and There

Liss Platt, Hamilton, On, Canada. Experimental, 10:30

Comprised of images of Brooklyn, New York, Hamilton, Ontario and the roadways that connect these two cities, the film is a rumination on places we call home. It explores the complexities of coming and going, and the loss experienced when trying to return. The experimental form and aesthetic of the film is, in part, an homage to filmmaker Diane Bonder.

The Double

Joseph Christiana, Hopatcong NJ, USA, Narrative Short, 9:00

World Premiere!

A surrealistic, schizophrenic episode of an interior dialogue. Trapped in a seedy motel room with his doppelganger, a man ponders many important ideas: religion, the merits of liberalism, and the justifications for cheating on his wife.

What Is She To You?

Alden Burgess, Brooklyn NY, USA. Narrative Short, 11:09

Brooklyn Premiere!

What is she to you? is a film that explores the idea that too often we let the opinions of others get in our way when making the biggest decision of our life - who we choose to love.
