A Short Film About Ice Fishing
Director: Jason Shahinfar
In rural South Dakota two friends go out for the most explosive day of ice fishing either will ever experience.

Aaron Burr, Part 2
Director: Dana O'Keefe
History is a contest.

Director: Nash Edgerton
Jack means well, but sometimes good intentions have horrible consequences.

Director: Lorcan Finnegan
A young couple trapped in a remote estate of empty houses and shrieking foxes are beckoned from their isolation into a twilight world. A world of the paranormal or perhaps insanity.

In The Pines
Directors: Zeek Earl, Chris Caldwell
Simultaneously an exploration of nature and psyche, the film documents a young woman's hunt for extraterrestrial meaning. Part science fiction, part psycho-thriller, part poetry - this film crafts a memorable scene rooted in the Pacific Northwest.

Director: Robert G. Putka
Bobby and Bliss are a happy couple, that is, until they begin to tell each other things probably better left unsaid. A single question leads them down a highway to relationship hell.

Pitch Black Heist
Director: John Maclean
Two men, professional safe crackers, meet on a simple job to relieve an office safe of its contents. The catch; a light activated alarm system impelling them to embark on a pitch black heist.

Playtime (Spielzeit)
Director: Lucas Mireles
A seamless journey through the lives of German youth on a Sunday afternoon.

Would You
Directors: Brian McGinn, Rod Blackhurst
Two friends play 'Would You Rather.' When their choices magically start to come true, they find themselves in a variety of awkward and funny situations.
