BLOWOUT, Director: Mark Falls
In the superhero business, you've got to roll with the punches. At a soiree hosted by super-brain Liam, old friends and foes reminisce over past misadventures. Big egos and fragmented alliances make for a potent cocktail, as the beautiful Damascus and ruthless Doctor FUNdamental steer the small talk to a shattering conclusion. Five heroes, one bar tab, zero do-overs.
JACK & SALLY, Director: Annie Pham
Jack and Sally live in isolation where a constant drive of addictive entertainment suppresses their loneliness. When a mysterious train connects the two, they embark on a surreal adventure, only to realize that their new found world is crumbling.
AVERY, OFFLINE, Director: Rachel Whitaker
After her boyfriend proposes to her over g-chat, blogger Avery Kirk diagnoses herself with an "allergy" to the Internet. AVERY, OFFLINE follows Avery's odyssey through New York City as she tries to navigate her first day offline.
PLATONIC SOLID, Director: Sarah Downey
Parker and Madison, two would-be lovers, attempt to re-define the term 'soul mate' in this story of love, loss, coming out, and coming of age. PLATONIC SOLID investigates what sexuality means in a modern society and dissects the common, yet rarely discussed, theme of gay men and lesbian women dating each other. It chronicles growth and development, and all that goes along with embracing one's true identity.
MIRIAM, Director: Esther Hegarty
Miriam Miller has lived a solitary but contented life since the death of her husband. One afternoon, when Mrs Miller pays a visit to her local cinema she is approached by a young girl who asks for her help to gain entry. Oddly she is also called Miriam. There is something strange and haunting about the child. Later that night Mrs. Miller's doorbell rings. Intrigued, she opens the door and young Miriam is standing there alone. After a series of further disturbing events, one afternoon the doorbell rings and it is Miriam. She tells Mrs. Miller she has come to live with her. Who is Miriam? Does she exist? Did Mrs. Miller imagine it all?
