Each of our shorts blocks is designed to take our audiences on a full-spectrum emotional journey. We sprinkle in a little of everything - drama, comedy, documentary, experimental, genre, and international flavor. What unites these films and makes them part of our lineup? We have found that they all have aftertaste.

Playing in this program:

Diego Escobar

A mother does everything within her reach to try and make her daughter happy during quarantine, to avoid making her memories ghosts from the past.

Derrick Duan

A lonesome astronaut roams alien landscape thinking of his left-behind love.

Charlie Tyrell

When schools lose arts funding, what happens to their musical instruments?

Deepak Sethi

Three Indian friends discuss what their "coffee shop names" are and their made-up personas behind them.

The Bragg Brothers

A university professor uses basic economics to up his ransom and get in on the action.

Chris Foito

A mother desperately tries to reconnect with her son across memories, missed calls, modern distractions, and the distance of neglected relationships.

Henry Roosevelt

Sainte-Mère-Église was ground zero on D-Day. For 75 years, people of all countries, races and faiths have gathered to commemorate those whose sacrifice changed the world. With few veterans left, who will preserve their legacy? SIXTH OF JUNE is the story of why we remember and what we lose if we forget.

Renuka Jeyapalan

Hard-boiled noir meets hipster chill in this tale of familial strife and vigilante justice. Desperate to bail her father out of jail, Suri (Indian, blonde and bougie) comes face-to-face with the criminal underworld that operates inside her seemingly quiet suburban community.
