Organized by Full Spectrum Features, a nonprofit committed to producing, exhibiting, and supporting the work of women, LGBTQ, and minority filmmakers, this annual showcase of local work includes a dynamic selection of recent experimental, narrative, documentary, and performance-based short films. These selections creatively engage with the home-movie format, archival material, family dynamics, the Internet, climate and landscape, the Great Migration, and the history of a town in Columbia. Curated by Raul Benitez (Full Spectrum Features/Comfort Film), Melika Bass (independent filmmaker/SAIC professor), and Emily Eddy (Nightingale Cinema/Onion City Film Festival/Video Data Bank), the program includes work by graduates of NU’s MFA in Documentary Media program.
