LISTEN by Grant Parris | Directed by ILesa Duncan Two friends Graham and Zach find themselves in an endless ‘groundhog day’ time loop. Will Zach figure out how to prevent the devastating outcome?

CAN’T SLEEP by Alexander Loaiza | Directed by Enrico Spada In order to stave off the grief of his dog dying James pretends he’s in a happy kids television show. Can he acknowledge his childhood traumas and awake from his dream?

YOU’RE LIKE, DEAD by Ella Johnson | Directed bty ILesa Duncan Richard, a socially awkward man, accidentally dies and lands in the afterlife where he encounters Death and soon realizes they are both grappling with the same struggle.
