THE BIG CHOP
Dir.: Derek Dow | 2016 | USA | Short Narr | 16 min
The Big Chop follows 10-years-old Kris on her natural hair journey of self-love and acceptance. Once a die-hard lover of her big Afro, negative hints from her mom and teasing on the playground causes Kris to get a perm. She continues to perm her hair as an adult until one day she has had enough. She stands in the mirror, and does the “big chop.” What follows after the chop is a pure emotional roller coaster.

MODERN DARK
Dir: Josh Lunden | 2016 | USA | Short Narr | 6 min
A young man living in the inner city, whose notions of space and understanding of his place in the universe are informed primarily by online videos and clouded by science fiction.

LEMONADE MAFIA
Dir.: Anya Adams | 2017 | USA | Short Comedy| 10 min

Kiras Organic lemonade dynasty becomes in jeopardy when newcomer Shantel Osgood sets up an extremely successful competing pink lemonade stand that encroaches into her territory. It is an all out neighborhood war amongst the young girls in a good-natured battle of wills between competing kid entrepreneurs in this a light-hearted comedy for all ages.
