“Stare into a mirror pool and laugh so princely vain. The skies become kaleidoscopes with no two turns the same.” Don’t miss this set of hilarious comedic shorts, ranging from broad hijinks to a little ham on wry. In Sharon Everitt’s Brentwood (US 2018, 12 min), Brent Spiner (aka Data) lampoons himself and his post-Star Trek legacy. Did we mention it’s a musical co-starring Peri Gilpin, LeVar Burton, and Doug Benson? A hotly-contested local election proves that sometimes every vote really does count in Fernand-Philippe Morin-Vargas’ Heads or Tails (Pile ou face) (Canada 2018, 15 min). Craig claims he can handle his weed but Craig's Pathetic Freakout (US 2018, 7 min), directed by Graham Parkes, proves he really, really can’t. In Gillian Barnes’ Are You Still Singing? (US 2018, 12 min), a struggling millennial/singing telegram artist is having a very bad day. Two film noir characters navigate a new landscape of socially conscious behavior in Ilyse Mimoun’s clever homage #Metoo Gumshoe (US 2018, 6 min). In Timothy Keeling’s surreal Two Puddles (UK 2018, 6 min), a family discovers an incredibly strange phenomenon while on a nature hike. And finally, Emily Mortimer stars as a Hungarian transplant reaching out to help Vietnam war refugees in A.M. Lukas’ warmly funny One Cambodian Family Please for My Pleasure (US 2018, 14 min). Be prepared for a lot of laughs and a lot of heart.
