Reasons to Come to the Media Film Festival April 7 - 8

It doesn't always take a two-hour film to get a point across.  Short duration films can pack a punch in a relatively short time span.


🍿1. Learn what it is like for migrants to live in "Limbo".

🍿2. Go behind the scenes for an "Audition".

🍿3. Are selkies mythological creatures or do they fish among us?

🍿4. Be amazed by a movie, filmed exclusively on an IPhone.

🍿5. Horror Films that may not keep you up at night but you will check in the closet and under the bed before you go to sleep.

🍿6. That one man show, that perhaps will make anyone reflect back on their life experiences.

🍿7. Find out about an amazing service in our area for people with disabilities.

🍿8. Social pressure, acceptable behavior and the two dollar bill.

🍿9. What would you do if you saw someone suffering and in pain? What are your choices? Would you keep silent?

🍿10. Crushed with a diagnoses of cancer, how do you cope? Where do you find the inner strength?
