Throughout the weekend, dozens of short films also screened in blocks, and selections included films by several local filmmakers like Sean Pettis, who premiered his stop-motion short film Baba Yaga Origins, and Miranda Limonczenko, who directed the Black Mirror-esque short film Sleepo. Many of the shorts were impressive exercises in horror, comedy, science fiction and drama.Charlie Swanson

It was a highlight of my dorky life to get to experience this movie in a standing-room-only packed auditorium with other diehards — not to mention John Russo himself there as a guest of honor.Sandra Nicander
Speaking with organizers, they stressed that this was a festival and not a convention — while modern conventions have turned into pop culture merchandise flea markets with expensive meet-and-greets, this festival’s focus was the films being shown, with their accompanying Q&A sessions and directing and writing workshops coming a close second.Geoffrey Smith II
