Audience Honorable Mention

RUNNING OUT

Avi Kaye

Jake needs to leave now, or he’ll miss his flight—but his laptop is missing, his girlfriend’s still packing, and his mom won’t stop calling. Just when he thinks things couldn’t get any worse…

At the beginning of RUNNING OUT, Jake calls a Lyft to take him and his girlfriend to the airport. Then in the time it takes for the driver to arrive, the film builds quietly to a heart-stopping crescendo. I love the emotional rollercoaster of this single-take short, and Rashid’s dynamic performance as Jake. You may need some recovery time after you finish this one. — Kath T (Programmer)
