The Goblin Baby by Shoshana Rosenbaum
New mother Claire feels isolated and overwhelmed by the needs of her baby, Charlie, especially when her husband leaves on a business trip. The growing sense that something in the woods is stalking her, sleep-deprivation, and Charlie’s incessant crying begin to drive Claire over the edge. Claire’s overbearing mother-in-
law, reads Charlie a fairy tale about a baby stolen by goblins and replaced with a changeling. That night, Claire hears strange sounds over the baby monitor and races upstairs to find a baby she doesn’t recognize in the crib. Everyone around her believes she is suffering from severe postpartum depression, but Claire knows she must go into the woods to get Charlie back.

M for Maritza by Alexis Pazmiño
Maritza fantasizes about standing up to racist and sexist coworkers. After one too many slights, fantasizing isn’t enough. This dark comedy explores the ways men, and even other women, often fail to support women of color in the workplace. 



Commercial For the Queen of Meatloaf by Dina Fiasconaro

Commercial for the Queen of Meatloaf is a short film based on the play by Emilie Feldenzer. Marge is a bored housewife. Rex, her inattentive husband. In an attempt to spice up their relationship, Marge employs the Queen of Meatloaf, an ephemeral concoction that seduces Rex and Marge into a state of slumber, while permeating the homes of consumers with her enchanting aura and addicting gustatory appeal.

Rex returns home from work to find Marge in the kitchen, where she has been slaving all day over dinner. But this will be no ordinary dinner. Tonight, Marge is serving the Queen of Meatloaf, “a gustatory experience altogether unlike ordinary meatloaf.” The Queen of Meatloaf emerges silently from the kitchen in bedazzled, human form. Rex is taken aback. Marge regales him with the Queen’s nutritional and nuptial benefits. They are so overcome by the Queen that they fall asleep at the table. The Queen, in direct address to the camera, explains her irresistible appeal. She begins to multiply, emerging in various other human forms and wreaking havoc on consumer TV sets, before disappearing with a slow buzz and a fading dot of white light on the black screen.



Berning Love by Katherine Chivers and Christopher Neubauer
Inspired by the emergence of politically-focused dating websites such as BernieSingles.com, BERNING LOVE highlights the parallel ways in which people search for love in their political and personal lives. The film takes the viewer inside a movement – which ultimately had a lasting impact on the general election – by following Bernie Sanders activists in the months leading up to the DC primary on June 14, 2016. In this increasingly divisive political landscape, BERNING LOVE offers a fresh perspective on last year’s events and reminds us of a more hopeful side of political engagement.
