How to Hack Birth Control

Sassy Mohen (Dir), 28 minutes USA, Western New York Premiere

Tara Messenger of Death

Julien Lasseur (Dir), 11 minutes USA, Western New York Premiere

Director Julien Lasseur in attendance.

During an island backpacking trip with her boyfriend, Tara finds a Go-Pro that reveals a missing influencer’s selfie-turned-tumble off a seaside cliff. A disagreement over what to do with the morbid footage ends the fighting couple’s relationship and leads Tara to a well intentioned but disastrously unwelcome encounter with the dead influencer’s hostile mother.


Hooving In

A Walk in West LA

Remington Hoffman (Dir), 20 minutes USA, World Premiere

Star/Writer/Producer Chris Collins in attendance.

Buffalo native Chris Collins stars, writes, and produces this charming bromance which finds two friends (Collins and Christian Henley) taking a stroll down a memory lane as they prepare to part ways.


It’s Always Something

Derrick Scocchera (Dir), 12 minutes USA, Western New York Premiere

Director Derrick Scocchera in attendance.

Through a series of vignettes, the often inexplicable behaviors of contemporary humans are observed and commented upon by a droll narrator. No matter how outlandish or senseless the action, one thing is certain: “It’s Always Something.”

Director Emma Sofia Fazzuoli in attendance.

When Brad orders takeout after his Grindr hookup, he gets more than he bargained for when Lucy, a food delivery robot, drops off a baby instead. Paranoid, he drags his roommate into the situation when their nosy neighbor arrives bringing more complications.
