April in Winter | Directed by: Emilie Silvestri | 15 min. United States, 2019
At the bottom of a frozen lake lie April's husband along with his snowmobile, unable to be retrieved until the spring thaw. With him trapped beneath the ice, April finds herself in limbo - in her mind, he is neither alive, nor really dead - the winter allows her to deny the truth. April becomes obsessed with the coyote who raids her chicken coop. Paranoid that the coyote is stalking her, she sets out with her husband's old rifle to hunt it down. When her hunt takes an unexpected turn, April is forced to confront the ways of the natural world and face her reality.

Secret World of Foley | Daniel Jewel, Director | 12 min. Documentary Short | United Kingdom, 2014
'The Secret World of Foley', takes us on a journey into the little known world of Foley Artists, who bring films to life by adding sound effects in post-production. We follow a multi-award winning two person team of Foley Artists and watch as they work together to bring to life a film about one morning in the life of a fishing village on the English coast. With their perfectly timed and precisely judged sound effects they transform the film as they interpret every sound detail, using props from their vast props store. This film shines a light on a little know film art form and is a testament to magic and wonder of Cinema itself.
