Not Anymore: A Story of Revolution, 15.00, Matthew VanDyke
Not Anymore: A Story of Revolution is a documentary short film that tells the story of the Syrian struggle for freedom as experienced by a 32 year old rebel fighter, Mowya, and a 24 year old female journalist, Nour, in Aleppo, Syria. The film is a 15 minute documentary short about why the Syrian people are fighting for their freedom, told through the emotional words of two powerful characters whose lives have been turned upside down and torn apart by war.
Stalled, 15.52, directed by Shannon Kohli, written by Meghan Gardiner
The entire script of STALLED has been pieced together solely using real quotes found in women’s washroom stalls across North America. What was shocking to discover was while there were several humorous quotations, there were countless pleas for help. The pleas are what make up this short film. Several themes naturally emerged, and distinct characters were then created out of the honesty of hundreds of people around the world.
