Valkyries Lantern, Directed by David Grauberger

What does it mean to persevere? Valkyries Lantern follows five interconnected people in a moment of setback. Journey into each character’s world to discover what it takes to dig deep, and make your own future.

The Silent Smile, Directed by Adan Chavez

“Set in a big theater, where a white light shines down on MIME, and his performance starts, from a fetal position stretching his limbs towards two lights that shines next to him representing his parents, he feels happy, secure, hopeful.

The light of his father vanishes leaving him with his mother alone, from then on he starts to question himself and his happiness, trying to find it from his friends, girlfriend, family and at the end his child. Putting a smiling face to everyone but feeling empty until the very end.

This is an homage to the late actor Robin Williams, who battle with depression, and inspired us to the very end. A magnificent human being and an incredible actor, who deserves more than one tribute.

This is ours for him.”

The Faint Goodbye, Directed by Aaron Garcia

No Words, Directed by Ryan Sheehy

Earthrise, Directed by Shane Joseph Willis
