Form and Repetition, 5 minutes by Dan Dickerson
A couple of rubes attempt to make a quick cash grab as they wallow in the final days of physical media. A movie that should be taken out back and shot.
The Check Mate by Jonah Stern, 30 minutes
Art, consumed in hubris, is incapable of accepting defeat. After losing his first chess match to a mysterious stranger, he becomes obsessed with retaliating. All the while, he fantasizes about a love interest to whom he has never spoken. Art’s inaction and obsessions play crucial roles as his life turns into a chess match, from the first move up until the very last.
Antic by Christopher Tevebaugh, 2 minutes
A clown with a lot on his mind.
A Thousand Pound Bomb by Paul Beck, 4 minutes
Winning Hearts Through Body Parts
Ceallaigh at Kilmainham by Kelly Gallagher, 7 minutes
A 16mm collaged and handcrafted exploration of land, roots, and the strength of the women who came before me.
Passion Project by John Kingston, 63 minutes
Donald, a delusional filmmaker specializing in aesthetically bankrupt, darkly comic, semi-autobiographical defense mechanisms whose long-winded scenes of crass, self-indulgent dialogue unsuccessfully attempt to emulate the work of his idols Woody and Quentin, becomes increasingly paranoid and conflicted about his latest project during pre-production. Enjoy the little movie.
