Not So Distant Future ( Shorts Category): In-Person Screening Proof of Vaccination is now required.

This program is composed of innovative films that are experimental in their approach with eerie futuristic elements that are not so distant to our forever changing present. Ranging from characters using VR dating apps to creating human robots, these stories approach the digital and dreamy realm of a dystopian future with finesse and leaving our character to either fight, flight or freeze as a result.
