* RAW – 10:29 mins:

During a military patrol, past and present are blurred by a horrifying transgression.


A terrified college student tries to sleep but keeps getting awakened by increasingly aggressive alerts from her university warning her of the latest sexual assaults on campus. She thinks she hears the perpetrator enter her house…or is it just triggered memories?

* @DOMINIC_FINCH – 10:28 mins:

“@dominic_finch” is a dark thriller following a day in the life a woman, Kay, stalking instagram hottie Dominic Finch. How will super-obsessed Kay react when she sees Dominic leave the bar with another woman?

* LOVE FROM SANTIAGO – 25:43 mins:

A semi-autobiographical telling of the director’s own mothers experience at the hands of his father, a story of escape, survival and love.

The film, documents the immediate days after a girl escapes an abusive relationship. Creeping out in the early morning she flees into the open desert. Heading as far as she can get, anywhere, just not there, not anymore.

‘Love From Santiago is a a homage, to how the strength of a mothers love can overcome the most traumatic circumstances. A portrait of a young woman travelling across Latin America, taking back her power as she breaks away from a violent life and begins to start again’ – Inti Rowland (Writer/Director)

Having co-written and performed the songs that feature in the film, this project brings together for the first time, Inti’s work in both the mediums he has given his life to – film and music. Through this unique approach to storytelling, he unites the emotional language of these two incredibly powerful art forms.

The film was shot entirely guerrilla, on a shoe string budget, with a skeleton crew in Chile in January 2018.

A debut – created by musician and filmmaker Inti Rowland.

    This is really too cool. A new genus of pteradon has been discovered, and named after the dragons of House Targaryen. https://www.iflscience.com/plants-and-animals/soaring-dragonlike-dinosaur-named-for-game-of-thrones-house-targaryen/ I am delighted, needless to say.   Especially by the kind words of the discoverer, paleontologist Rodrigo Pegas, who is solidly on my side about dragons having two legs, not four, and pfui on
