Featuring:

 

The Interviewer (2013 Best of Festival Winner) [13 min.] Director: Genevieve Clay-Smith and R. Bryan; AUSTRALIA.

Thomas Howell gets more than he bargained for in his interview at a presitigious law firm; an insult about his tie, a rendition of Harry Potter, and the chance to change the lives of a father and son.

 

 

Bastion (2015 Best of Festival Short Winner) [11 min.] Director: Ray Jacobs; U.K.

A completely bald man walks into a barber shop, his reflection in the window has told him it's time for a haircut.

Nothing is quite as it seems in this Slovakian folklore-inspired animation.

 

 

Regione Caecorum (In the Land of the Blind) (2015 P.K. Walker Innovation in Craft Award) [3 min.] Director: Drew Goldsmith; U.S.

If a society is built with blind people as the norm, it might be the person with sight who feels disabled. 

 

 

Rent-A-Crip (2015 Disability Comedy Award) [3 min.] Director: Terry Galloway and Diane Wilkins; U.S.

A savvy group of disabled people have taken the reins from the able-bodied profiteers and put themselves in control.
