Christmas of Nothing
(dir. Joseph Verrico)
Carlo's children are spoiled, bratty, and entitled. They've known only times of goodness and plenty. Carlo wants them to feel what it's like to have nothing. His gift for Christmas this year is nothing.
Narrative Short - United States, 16:00

Evil's Evil Cousin (dir. Richard Hunter)
During Pastor Bob's service one of the congregation takes a turn for the worse, inadvertently birthing himself out of himself; resulting in the arrival of his evil twin - 'Evil Terry'. Pastor Bob takes this as a sign from God, a test, a renewal of his lacking belief - perhaps - perhaps not. Food fights, trouser removal and shotgun exorcisms ensure and like all good things, the story ends in a sing song.
Narrative Short - United Kingdom, 30:00

<--Schizophrenia (dir. Yuri Muraoka)
Self-portrait conducted in my 7th year of treatment for schizophrenia.
Experimental Short - Japan, 10:00


<--Jon & The Wolf
(dir. Ryan Maples)
A short film about a 15-year-old outcast who becomes obsessed with Michelle, his beautiful 22-year-old guitar teacher and, influenced by the legendary metal icon Luke Wolf, gets a little crazy as he tries to win her love. The power a broken heart has over creating great music and the power music has to mend a broken heart is at the core of the movie. It is a coming of age tale with layers of reality and fantasy that come together to tell a powerful yet comedic story. Jon & The Wolf is for anyone that’s had a crush, a dream and got through adolescence with the help of some great music.
Narrative Short - United States, 18:00

Condemned (dir. Steven Biver)
Life is but a dream. Some believe the victims await their killer in afterlife.
Narrative Short - United States, 13:54
