About this Event
Come watch an international selection of one dozen short films and choose which film will be awarded the Championship title at this tournament style showcase presented by The Madlab Post.
Attendees get to cast a vote for their favorite films among an eclectic mix of genres from several countries including mixed martial artist Domenic Porcari’s Harry Potter inspired fantasy drama The Magic Words, alongside Steve Anderson’s quirky romantic comedy The Secret Lives of Teachers and award-nominated director Makeba Ross’ domestic drama Countervail.
From a journalist whose mandatory military service separates him from his wife, to an animated take on what happens in your garden when you’re not looking, this year’s program takes audiences on an adventure through love, road trips, grief, crime, depression, spiritual enlightenment and unusual hobbies. Join us in celebrating our “Movie of the Month” award recipients as well including suspense thriller director Peter Mackie.
The 2019 Short Film Slam: Round V Championships lineup also features documentaries exploring multifaceted aspects of the human experience such as an auto mechanic’s strange and unexpected ride to fatherhood; Asian identity as it relates to the intersections of Korean, Cambodian, Chinese and American cultures, and an actress coping with cancer through humor and optimism.
