“The Adventures of... “ • Sophia Loffreda 
Dramedy  – 17 min

Jack, a lonely Waikiki street performer, must help a neighbor and her sick mother seek medical help. 

“Night at the Club” • Kira Matica
Experimental – 10 min
Four strippers united by the joint forces of a slow business night and the judgement of a moralizing do-gooder subvert the prevailing narrative about themselves by irreverently imitating it and replacing it with their own embodied story.

“I am Mackenzie” • Artemis Anastasiadou 
Drama – 20 min 
Caught among toxic masculine behaviors, a sequin dress and a teenage crush, a teen skater tomboy, growing up in rural Texas, will have sex for the first time in the back of their dad’s truck.
