Below are the first batch of the best of the shorts that I saw playing at the festival. I am still going threw other films as this posts so look for another post over the weekend.
YOU-PEARL AND THE BEARD
Charming music video about two women who go to a restaurant.
Beautifully shot, very moving look at a woman with PTSD. Damn if they didn't get it right.
Portrait of Lillie Solomon a woman who loves puppets and performing. This is a neat little film about a woman and her passions.
100 LEVELS OF JUST IN TIME
A group of friends get together to play a board game and get sucked into it. Think of it as a solid riff on JUMANJI. I want to see asequel
ONE FOR THE ROAD
Made in 48 hours this is the story of a road trip- can't say more than that because you'll know when you see it. Excellent and one of the delight of the film festival with a kick in the ass ending. One of my favorites
A young woman goes home to visit her cousin. Awesome acting and beautiful filmmaking made me want to see more of this story. There is something here and this film should be turned into a feature- but the cast as to be the same.
The story of two girls who take a day off from work and then things go side ways. The unexpected turns make this a delight
A girl gets revenge at a bake sale. I dare not say more than that except its funny, sick and twisted.
A riff on WEEKEND AT BERNIE'S when three women have to get a dead star out of their house.
