To Gerard (USA, 7 min.)

Rated PG-13. In IF ANYTHING HAPPENS, parents mourn their child, killed in a school shooting. GENIUS LOCI contains some profanity, smoking, and very brief nudity. The program overall, while excellent, deals with some tough issues and a few of the films are not suitable for children under 12.

Feeling Through – Doug Roland and Susan Ruzenski (USA, 19 min.)
Two Distant Strangers – Travon Free and Martin Desmond Roe (USA, 25 min.)

The Letter Room – Elvira Lind and Sofia Sondervan (USA, 33 min.)

Rated R. Adult themes and language. One of the better Live Action programs in recent years.

A Love Song for Latasha – Sophia Nahli Allison and Janice Duncan (USA, 18 min.)
Do Not Split – Anders Hammer and Charlotte Cook (USA/Norway, 36 min.)
Hunger Ward – Skye Fitzgerald and Michael Scheuerman (USA, 40 min.)
Colette – Anthony Giacchino and Alice Doyard (France/Germany/USA, 24 min.)
A Concerto Is a Conversation – Ben Proudfoot and Kris Bowers (USA, 13 min.)

Rated R. The Hong Kong protests, Black history, the Holocaust. Please note that HUNGER WARD is a very intense look at child hunger in Yemen and the program is very much not for young audiences.

Includes all three Oscar nominated short film programs.
