FRIDAY JUNE 14 • 9 PM • 75 MIN.



The Atlantic Auteurs program celebrates eleven new short films from a diversity of regional filmmakers, including several HIFF alumni and some exciting new voices. HIFF is proud to be screening the premiere of Josh Owen’s Ghoulish Galactic Grievances, an immersive and intoxicating trip into a frenzied world of ghouls and goblins. Henry Colin’s delicate and beautifully shot Passage makes you feel like you’re being let in on a secret. You will never look at a doughnut the same way after viewing Lisa Morse’s completely unique, optically printed 16mm experimental animation hybrid film, A Nice Big Zero For You. Another analogue treat is Rena Thomas’ Selkie, an intimate and sensual return to the ocean, skillfully composed on black-and-white Super 8 film. These and more complete the impressive showcase of Atlantic Canadian filmmaking talent at HIFF 2019.
