Mon Reve Familier
Dir. Jimmy Ferguson. 13 min.
A circus performer recalls a doomed passion in this stunningly captivating visual piece shot on 35mm. The images and words of the woman he loved haunt him as she eludes him in a sensual dance. The film, like Verlaine’s poem, becomes a subtle study evoking the mystery of love and of loss.
And Lo Guilharmenia
Dir. Maria Dyer. 16 min
Surrealist film that combines live action and animation.
Bruised and Diffused
Dir. Stavit Allweis. 3 min.
Aurelio Valle’s new single, Bruised and Diffused, gets another layer of meaning when coupled with desolate miniature sets from the director’s studio.

Set in 1990′s New Zealand, Double Happy follows Rory, a lonely teenager who’s plans to surprise his best friend for her birthday will take a turn for the worst.
When The Land Turned Black
Dir. Ashley Panzera. 4 min
When The Land Turned Black is a glimpse into the life of a third generation farmer in North Dakota, Donny Nelson, and the changes he’s seen to his land during one of America’s largest oil booms. He’s now surrounded by 25 oil wells, and documented spills, accidents and the release of dangerous gasses on his once-peaceful farm. Donny’s connection and love for his land is a powerful contrast to the oil industry around him.
Am I Next
Dir. Jeremy Levine. 5 min
Looting, chanting, tear gas, rubber bullets – these are the images from Ferguson, Mo. entering American homes. But the vast majority of protesters are armed with little more than chalk and paper signs, hoping to create a memorial for Michael Brown, the teenager killed by a police officer in the St Louis suburb on Aug. 9. We followed teenager Shane Flowers as he weaved through the protests, attempting to let his voice be heard and fight for change with darkness slowly falling on Florissant Avenue. As he moves through the crowds, he hears differing opinions from other protesters on the best ways to fight for change.

Chris Casey. 3 min
Story of a relationship through dance on film
