When the Land Turned Black - Blair Briody (4 min)

This film is a glimpse into the life of a third generation farmer, Donny Nelson, and the changes he's seen to his land during North Dakota's oil boom. With over 25 oil wells drilled on his property, Nelson has documented spills, accidents and the release of dangerous gasses on his once-peaceful farm. Donny's connection and love for his land is a powerful contrast to the oil industry around him.


Death of Del Paso - Phil D'Asaro (10 min)

The glory days for North Sacramento's Del Paso area date back to the Gold Rush, but its decades-old story of decline may have a modern-day purple lining.


Code Oakland - Kelly Amis (22 min)

"Code Oakland" examines the evolution of Oakland through the eyes of social entrepreneurs determined that youth of color not be left on the sidelines as Silicon Valley expands into the city that is home to the second largest black community in California.


Silo, A Spiritual Path - Pablo Lavin (70 min)

Silo, a Spiritual Path, tells the inspirational story of one man's response to global violence and the repressive regimes of Argentina and Chile. Silo's radical system of self-realization leading to nonviolent social change speaks powerfully to those working for social justice and human rights today.

Afternoon Delight - Danna Wilberg (10 min)

While Alain Trudeau is busy working for the French Embassy, his wife Janine is busy too...keeping a secret.


Between the Miles - Michelle Opitz (90 min)

Florence reluctantly takes a job as a guitar teacher at a homeless drop-in shelter in L.A. where she meets three rambunctious teens who remind her of herself. As much trouble as they give her, she can't help but form a connection.




Happy Accidents - Nick Coleman (10 min)

"Happy Accidents" is modeled after the fast-paced, zany antics of screwball comedies of the 30s and 40s, with nods to later films such as Some Like It Hot. The story itself is a comedy about a divorced couple who don't know what they want and wind up back together, despite their therapist's sage advice.


Monotony's Lover - Judith Plank (52 min)

Two years after the death of her husband in Iraq, a woman finds an old photo of a lost love. Determined to find him, she ends up finding herself.
