Synopsis: 
Matt picks his girlfriend Lara up at the bus station. They are happy to see each other, but something is off. He assumes she’s nervous to meet his parents for the first time and tries to lighten the mood, but soon their small talk turns into a collision of differing expectations for their long-distance relationship. When Lara reveals that she cheated on Matt on the bus, his surprising reaction leads to an argument. Tension-filled scenes as they drive towards an uncertain future are interspersed with flashbacks to a bus ride where Lara meets an intriguing man. THE MAN ON THE BUS is a powerful story where the hopeful beginning of a chance encounter with a stranger is juxtaposed with the moment of realization that a relationship may not last.

Synopsis: 
Shot in 16mm. Stylized as a cheezy B-movie self-aware comedy. Molly, a 60-something-year-old lady goes out of her way to find a secluded beach all to herself on a smoldering hot day to settle into "her spot". Over the course of the hot day, 5 separate absurd characters arrive at different times. Each character represents corny white beach movie personality archetypes pushed to an absurd extreme. Each character shows up at different times to introduce themselves to Molly, much to her nuisance. She's shocked, dumbfounded, and annoyed by each character that shows up, stemming from her entitlement to this piece of land she staked at random that's already not hers to share. They settle into their spaces around her at the beach. The more characters try to engage with Molly, the more she becomes irritated, impatient, and frightened from the entire situation. She loses her temper on all of them, and demands they leave her alone. An alien then appears to open Molly's third eye and heal her from her judgemental and entitled perspective. Now awoken, Molly and all 6 characters walk into the water together, until they are out of sight.

Synopsis: 
On his 26 birthday, awkward, people-pleasing Youssef finally embraces his gayness...but then his girlfriend proposes and his Muslim parents move in with him. If a smooth sea never made a skillful sailor, then Youssef is on his way to becoming captain. He’s a kind, caring Arab man with strict parents, an impatient fiancée and a repressed “affinity” for burly men. This is Youssef’s journey of self-discovery as he navigates his path from permission seeking pushover to unapologetic dreamer in a sea of traditional Muslim ideals. Join Youssef as he navigates the choppy waters between his worlds. Arranged marriage, Grindr, tea, drag, Ramadan, pride- he treads it all. A cross between the wit of the hit Australian show Please Like Me and the cultural richness of Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, this story doesn’t actually have anything to do with the ocean. Ahoy?
