At 7:30, the films will begin with this year’s winner of the Best Student Film category: Erin Lou’s film, “The Moon and The Night”. “The Moon and the Night” is a 19-minute long film about a girl in rural Hawaii who must confront her father for entering her beloved dog into a dog fight. The Friday night film block will also feature Kalainithan Kalaichelvan’s film, “Petit Four”, which was the winner of this year’s $10,000 Artist Vodka Award. “Petit Four” is about a married couple’s struggle when one suspects the other of having an affair with a ghost. The Best Narrative Feature of this year’s film festival will also be screened during the Friday night film block. The winner of the Narrative Feature is Jordan Noel’s 90-minute film, “This World Alone” which follows the journey of Sam, a bookworm in her late-teens, navigating life on an Earth without any technology or power after a cataclysmic event. After an accident, Sam is forced to leave her two mother figures and put her makeshift parents’s opposing worldviews to the test.
