5@5 SHORT FILMS: FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS

A selection of short films from MVFF37, including:
LAVA (James Ford Murphy, US) - A new short from Disney’s Pixar, Lava is a musical love story taking place over millions of years, inspired by the isolated beauty of tropical islands and the explosive allure of ocean volcanoes.
AMERICAN GLADIATORS (Lara Gallagher, US) - Sibling rivalry between sisters takes an unexpected turn in Lara Gallagher’s American Gladiators.
BRICOLAGE (Michael Schwartz, US) - Artist and best-selling author Keri Smith (Wreck This Journal) poses the question: “How can we care about something if we don't notice it?” And then invites the camera to explore the world she creates for her readers.
FENTO MANAGEMENT (Martin Sweeney, US)  - Welcome to the new corporate landscape of leadership in Martin Sweeney’s visionary Femto-Management: A Micromentary.
MAD GOD (Phil Tippett, US) - The animation train screams to a stop with visual effects master Phil Tippett’s first installment of Mad God, where characters writhe in macabre, nightmarish splendor.
ONE YEAR LEASE (Brian Bolster, US) - Ahhh, renting an apartment in New York City: Tiny, challenging spaces coupled with enormous rents. Told almost entirely through voicemail messages, One Year Lease documents the travails of Brian, Thomas, and Casper as they endure a year-long sentence with Rita, the cat-loving landlady.
SIREN (Alex Clark, Canada) - Alex Clark’s creepy Siren joins paramedics who face more than they bargained for in an emergency response.
