What's Eating Dad? (U.S.A. 11 min.) Director: Michael Goldburg
When Chloe meets her boyfriend's parents for the first time, what's really for dinner is something she never imagined.

(U.S.A., 12 min.) Directro: Nicholas Coles
Meet Tom and Barbara, the proud new owners of a serial killer’s house-- the most infamous residence in Sacramento, California. The middle-age couple soon realizes it's going to take more than a fresh coat of paint to whitewash their home's macabre history.

Superjednostka (Poland, 20 min.) Director: Teresa CZipiec
Superjednostka (Polish for Superunit) is a huge block of flats designed as a 'housing machine'. Up to three thousand people can live on 15 floors of the building. The lifts only stop every three floors so the residents must go through a maze of corridors and stairs in order to get to their flats. The main characters of the documentary are people living in Superjednostka and going through important moments of their lives there. This is where their emotions throb, their expectations engender, and their desires come true... or not.
762 flat doors and 762 stories. We are opening only a few of them.

Dance of the People (U.S.A., 10 min.) Director: Marc Menish
Prior to 1971, most precision clogging teams in North Carolina followed the same basic formula. The Green Grass Cloggers, created by East Carolina University students, sidestepped many of the staid conventions and sparked a shift within the greater clogging community. Forty-four years on, with some members facing the effects of gravity on their aging bodies, it is clear that newer dancers are needed to maintain the Green Grass legacy -- dancers with their own sense of what it means to be a clogger. This documentary explores this pivotal point in the team's rich history.

What happens when you truly care? When you take the time to listen? Free Custom Poetry is about one person's desire to give the unexpected to anyone who happens to stroll by.

On a dry lakebed in Nevada, a group of friends build the first scale model of the solar system with complete planetary orbits: a true illustration of our place in the universe.

Moving On (U.S.A., 11 min.) Directors: Mike Spear, Marcia Fields
Imagine being awakened in the morning by a knock on your door, and opening it to find two movers hired by your girlfriend with the dual purpose of breaking up with you, and moving you out of your home. In this modern world where technology too often replaces actual human interaction, the most personal moments in our lives are being delivered by the most impersonal methods. This short film takes a look at what would happen if even breakups were contracted out. And you thought getting dumped by text was embarrassing! MOVING ON is about what happens when you find you need to move on and move out at exactly the same time.

Total Running Time: 100 min.
