Mariner/ Directed by Thyrone Tommy, 2016, Canada, 20 min 2016
Mariner is a taut and unsettling drama about an ambitious marine navigation cadet on the verge of cracking during his final exams. The recruit is haunted by an incident from his past — and fights to find a way to turn his personal demons into a source of strength.

SNIP/ Directed by Terril Calder, 2016, Canada, 15 min
In this richly layered stop-motion animation, written and narrated by award-winning author Joseph Boyden, Annie and Gordon travel through a portal in time to help two children escape the horrors of residential school.

Mutants / Directed by Alexandre Dostie, Canada, 17 min
A teenager just trying to make it through the summer of 1996, Keven begins his baseball season with an accident that leaves him with a truly hideous black eye. This leads to a crash course in sex, sports, and scandal — taught by a hilariously unconventional coach — that demolishes coming-of-age story conventions.

Fish / Directed by Heather Young, 2016, Canada, 12 min.
In this devastating portrait from Nova Scotia filmmaker Heather Young, a woman struggles with raising her three infant children while still clinging to a fading relationship.

A Funeral For Lightning / Directed by Emily Kai Bock, 2016, Canada / USA, 24 min Seven months pregnant and stuck in a sleepy corner of Tennessee, a young woman begins to see through the promises made by her charismatic husband. Every moment of Emily Kai Bock’s quietly wrenching film is infused with emotions both light and dark.
