I Am He Who Created Himself – Emma Penaz Eisner (San Francisco, California)
This surrealistic film intermixes stop motion animation, time lapse photography, and live action sequences to re-imagine one of the paradigmatic creation myths recorded in antiquity.  The first god, joining with his shadow, creates himself, the progenitor of humanity. 2019; 4 min. 

The Hearing of the Eye  Alessia Cecchet (Santa Cruz, California) 
Thisexperimental film explores death through a post-humanist lens. Our understanding of an animal changes once it has died. We look away, no longer in awe and the wonder becomes abject. The film centers on the animal in its passing, compelling the viewer to reconsider its value and, thereby, to open the possibility for empathy. 2018; 6 min. 

Babasha– Pol Rebaque (Barcelona, Spain)
Inspired by the latest album from underground artist Marina Herlop, Babasha is defined by reminiscences of classical contemporary music and hints of electronic influences.  Foregoing a conventional narrative, the film unfolds as a journey through several moods and inner experiences. 2019; 15 min. 

Off The Rails - Damian Fitzsimmons  (Del Ray Beach, Florida)
This coming-of-age story centers on three young men. Set in the early 70s, it chronicles what came to be known as the Age of Aquarius, a period of social growth, political awareness, and unrest.  Freedom is the byword of existence for Chris, Liam, and Manny, who are floating aimlessly in this youth-fueled counter culture. Equally lovable as they are inept, they decide to open a bar without any concrete idea of what it will take to make a success of their joint venture. Through trials and tribulations, they come to discover who they are as individuals and what they really want in life. 2018; 92 min.
