Honorable Mention, Genre Film

STUCCO

Janina Gavankar, Russo Schelling

J is trying and failing to move forward as the scars of old relationships keep her trapped inside her new home. While hanging a piece of art, she knocks a hole in her wall that reveals what might be a hidden room. Her mind races to think what could be on the other side as she continues to unravel.

If you’re into strange genre films that keep you guessing and completely entranced, then STUCCO is the film for you. Excellently shot with a top notch sound design, this film immerses you into the world of a young woman living in fear of what could be on the other side of the hole in her wall. Using killer VFX and nightmarish imagery, STUCCO is wonderfully weird. — Jillian C (Programmer)
