Michel, subject to violent hallucinations, must overcome the imminence of death during his extradition flight towards United States.

  MOVIE POSTERFOOTPRINTS, 13min, Canada, Horror/Family
Directed by Kevin Saycharuen

Deep in the forest, Cahng, an injured hunter searches for his family who are being haunted by a supernatural force.

Director’s Statement:

Footprints is a film created in equal parts of my love and frustration of filmmaking.

Growing up as a first-generation son of Laotian immigrants in Canada, you live a two-sided life. One side remembers what blood runs through your vein- for me, it was my parents growing up in a small rural village in Laos and how they suffered through civil unrest and immigrated all over the world until settling in Canada. The other side is being brought up as a son of immigrants in a metropolitan North American city. Tradition clashes with first world culture that do not comfortably fit together.

Footprints is a film where I attempt to reconcile my parent’s tradition and my own generation’s culture together. A film that combines my upbringing with the blood that runs through my veins, remembering and honoring both sides.

CANTATA IN C MAJOR, 7min, USA, Horror/Musical
Directed by Ronnie Cramer

Six-hundred-five film clips are assembled and used to create a piece of electronic music. As the visual component appears in the center of the screen, the original analog audio is sent to the left channel while it is simultaneously converted into digital music data and sent to the right channel. The digital data is also transposed into traditional musical notation and displayed on the screen as it is converted. The film includes an animated ‘chalkboard’ introduction that explains the entire process.

SILENTLY WITHIN YOUR SHADOW, 14min, UK, Horror/Thriller
Directed by Scott Lyus

As their relationship grows, Lucette’s obsession for ventriloquism and her dummy Hugo starts to strain her relationship with Jace. To Luctette Hugo is more than just a dummy, he’s her best friend and represents her ambition as an artist, to her, he’s very much real.

Silently Within Your Shadow – Director’s Statement

Silently Within Your Shadow is my attempt at creating a story driven horror film, with strong characters, that doesn’t rely on blood and gore.

I wanted to dig into the heart of an artist, in our case a ventriloquist performer, and see how deep her love for her art ran; and explore the effects on her relationship with her boyfriend and the horror that provides.

-Scott Lyus
