These strangely funny, lovingly sexy, romantic short films are sure to turn you on (to something).


It’s easy to confuse lust for love. Physical desire can be as fleeting as text messages, as overwhelming as drugs, as biological as micro‐organisms rutting in a bog. Desire can lead the mind to sense something deeper, more emotional than mere sex. But the effect can reverse itself as well: the mechanics of sexuality can inspire compassion, connection, real love. In these short films, when desire and depth are confused, the results are touching and titillating.


THE FILMS

MY BBY 8L3W (NEOZOON | Germany/France | 4 min.)
Overly cutesy collage of YouTube videos in which women overenthusiastically introduce their pets to the world. They all openly declare their love of their pedigree dogs and cats.

Bottom Feeders (Matt Reynolds | USA | 2 min.)
A day in the life in a terrible world. Divided by a barrier of fog, two disparate species fight to adapt and survive in an alien ecosystem.

Pop-Up Porno: m4f (Stephen Dunn | Canada | 4 min.)
A painfully ill Dutch Montrealer has to use the bathroom while his date is in the shower.

SMILF (Frankie Shaw | USA | 9 min.)
A young single mother struggles to balance her old life of freedom with her new one as mom. It all comes to a head during one particular naptime when Bridgette invites an old friend over for a visit.

Brontosaurus (Robert Putka | USA | 6 min.)
A movie about face-licking, Barbie dolls, and whether or not Jeff Goldblum rode a Brontosaurus in Jurassic Park.

Prends-Moi (André Turpin and Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette | Canada | 11 min.)
A nurse working in a center for the disabled is confronted to his principles when he’s asked to accomplish a particular task.

Heartless (Nara Normande, Tião | Brazil | 25 min.)
Leo goes on vacation to his cousin's fishing village. There, he meets a girl called Heartless.

Serenity (Jack Dunphy | USA | 5 min.)
An animated memoir recounting first love, addiction, losing one’s virginity, and turning to pizza in times of crisis. Construction paper animation, Faces of Death, sex, drugs, and Citizen Kane: all collide in this tale of young love.

Pop-Up Porno: f4m (Stephen Dunn | Canada)
A breast cancer survivor tries to reclaim her sexuality on an online dating website.

MUSIC

Gingerlys
Described as "pure ear candy," the EP starts off with "Jumprope" which quickly introduces what Gingerlys are all about -- songs filled with fuzzy guitars, dreampop melodies, guitar hooks galore and Maria's soft sultry vocals. The second track "Summer Cramps" switches from dreamy to jangly, a summer pop anthem that is insanely catchy. The B-side opens with the head-rush breakneck speed of "Better Hearts" and closes with the delightful Felt-ish guitars of "Set You Off".
