The Servant


Director: Farnoosh Abedi

A bug becomes a servant, the servant becomes the master.

The Servant



Director: Curtis Matzke

A centuries-old vampire craves the company of loved ones and contemplates the immortality in a world where healthcare has progressed to the point where even the darkest outsiders are cared for … but a small piece of wood can still kill such a creature.


Head Wound


Director: Patrick Valenti

This year, 1 in 5 women will engage in self-harm. And, though she may not look it, Bridgett is one of them. While the outside world sees a put-together office worker with a normal life, Bridgett and her boyfriend must suffer the strain on their relationship in the privacy of their home.
