The Paintings Paint Themselves - James Hollenbaugh (Lancaster, Pennsylvania)  For the past 20 years, New York based, self-taught artist Bill Mayer has been creating an exuberant and startling body of work that captures the gritty street life of pre-Bloomberg New York City and reimagines classical painting genres inspired by lifelong visits to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Last of Our Kind - Reed O'Beirne  (Seattle, Washington) Weaving together film, music, and poetry, this film transforms the memory of a lost love into a ritualistic incantation of longing.

Featuring an original soundtrack created by Cocteau Twins' founder, Robin Guthrie, interwoven with a voice-over recitation of Rick Linville’s poem. 2012; 13 min. Best of 2013 United States Super 8 Film & Digital Video Festival!
