LIVE FEED – Daniel Maldonado (New York, New York) Live Feed is an interpretative short that playfully examines the role of intermedia ( as an “in-betweeness) and the work of award winning electro acoustic composer, Jeff Morris. Using the form of a tangled live performance that includes interviews, a motion controlled piano algorithm, a Synaesthesia painter and found object percussionist, new musical voices are shaped. The “four way triangle” that emerges opens up questions about creativity and the arts in the 21st century. 2023; 13 min.

Cowgirls and Synthesizers – Joe Wallace (Springfield, Illinois) UK hit-maker and Eurovison songwriter Ricardo Autobahn follows the synthesizer pop duo Hyperbubble, described by Alternative Press as "the sonic equivalent of a truckload of Twizzlers", as they drive to Nashville to record a country and western album using only synthesizers, drum machines, and theremin. Along the way, Hyperbubble members Jess and Jeff meet cartoon cult heroes Samantha Newark of Jem and the Holograms and Manda Rin of Bis/Powerpuff Girls fame, Theremin diva Dorit Chrysler, music fashion guru Manuel Cuevas, cosmic cowboy Garett T Capps, air-drumming filmmaker Ari Gold, Do-It-Yourself vinyl pioneers Shoes, synth-pop sweeties Freezepop, Lederhosen Lucil, Helen Love, and Our Daughters Wedding, and somehow end up winners in Dolly Parton's Netflix song contest. Cowgirls and Synthesizers is a fast, fun, fanzine telling the true story of Hyperbubble's over 20-year career, splattered with color, animation, and comedy. 2023; 80 min.

Sunday, June 9, 2024 – Online for 24 Hours and In-Person at 7PM!

CARNÍVORA – Felipe Vargas (Los Angeles, California) When their mother vanishes, two estranged sisters are forced to caretake for their catatonic grandma… only to realize that grandma isn’t grandma at all. 2023; 12 min. Final day of the 2024 New Jersey International Film Festival Competition Features 5 Great Films!

STAKES IS HIGH – Jean-Pierre Caner (Los Angeles, California) Much like TAXI DRIVER was a reflection of post-Vietnam America, STAKES IS HIGH captures America right now. Will Goldin is the everyman of this moment, living off the fumes of a dream, turning to the gig economy with hopes of a better future only to find a rat race to the bottom – a story that has only become more and more relevant. Accordingly, STAKES IS HIGH is a ride. One scene leading to the next, the story building as Will tries to get ahead while risking it all. 2023; 90 min.

These two programs will be screening online for 24 hours TODAY- Sunday, June 8 and will also be shown in-person at either 5:00 PM and 7:00PM in Voorhees Hall #105/Rutgers University, 71 Hamilton Street, New Brunswick, NJ. Tickets are available for purchase here:  https://2024newjerseyinternationalfilmfestival.eventive.org/welcome
