6. The Man From Orlando

Orlando is a seasonal lifeguard/gangster, who decides to throw the towel in (har-har) on his life of crime and escape to Priddy, Texas. Little does he know the gang of evil lifeguards is in hot pursuit. This little film from Austin makes us appreciate all the wacky indie comedies that will never comply to Hollywood standards and are so much better for it.

Who ever thought a short sci-fi comedy could be so romantic… This is a short tale of epicness, and begins with Karen waking up after a night of drinking locked in her room with a handsome suited stranger.. Think ‘Men In Black’ meets the girl next door with a side of British comedy.

4. The Sea In Between

Somewhere on an Island in Canada something magical happened. 15 musicians that had never met were brought together along with popular folk artist, Josh Garrels, to make an album of indie music goodness, and filmmaker, Matt Porter, was there to capture the whole story.

1. Sky High

After a horrific BASE-jumping accident left 21 year-old Jarret Martin paralyzed, he continues to do the unthinkable and has a passion for living life like no other.
