* A BATTLE IN WATERLOO – 11:04 mins:

During the Battle of Waterloo, Ellen (Jessie Buckley) searches for her missing husband in the nearby forest and resorts to desperate measures to survive.

* CROWBAR – 27:59 mins:

Everyone needs what I call a Crowbar Moment, where someone stands between you and physical or emotional harm. At that instant, you come to believe that you are safe, valued and loved.

In CROWBAR, based on a true story, a lonely young child is out searching for love and attention. However, it’s a predator that spots her hungry hollow look and takes her in. Still searching, as a teenager, she allows abuse in exchange for cheap friendships and counterfeit love, until an unexpected hero creates that ‘Crowbar Moment’ which changes her life forever.

* DISPEL – 13:54 mins:

When young Lizzie learns her older brother is moving out, she realizes she will be left at home alone with her monster of a mother. Armed with the lessons of her favorite TV show, ‘Celeste Skygoode’, Lizzie battles to save her mother from the dark forces that have transformed her.

* DIVA’S PERFECT POSSE – 7:58 mins:

Aging plus size model Diva Deluxé Vecchio and her diverse Posse navigate the high fashion world and all of life’s struggles, from Albuquerque, NM. Episodes: PERFECT PODIUM, CATCH ME OUTSIDE, & PERFECT PREDICAMENT.

* HAIR TELLS THE WEATHER – 3:20 mins:

Science isn’t all about numbers. In response to the need for increased mutual understanding between the National Weather Service and the Navajo people, a regional bilingual weather outreach document was created with the goals of improving public safety, providing educational resources in the Navajo language, and promoting the preservation of a language. In 2017, the National Weather Service learned the importance of the Navajo Tsiiyéél in relationship to weather which culminated in the Navajo Weather Poster. Comments from a community member pointed out that Navajo is not originally a written language, and that aspects of the Navajo Weather poster should be available in audio-visual formats for all Navajo speakers.

* PRAYERS OF A SAINT – 10 mins:

A small town girl escapes her abusive home in the hopes of something better than the life she and her mother have been trapped in. She heads for California where anything seems possible… but along the way discovers the world isn’t as welcoming as she had imagined. Her courage and will to survive are tested when she encounters a man desperately trying to escape his own demons.

* VALDIS HAUS: HIGH STAKES – 7:44 mins:

Dee and Sam, two bored 300 year old vampires, host a high stakes poker game. But the stakes are much higher than their guests ever expected.

* HERE TODAY – 13:32 mins:

A high school girl struggles to find her own identity with a new group of friends and discovers that together, their choices have an impact beyond what they ever imagined. This universally autobiographical tale, written by 15 year old Meredith Grace Dabney, is a reminder of vulnerability, life’s connections and most importantly that words and actions, however small, affect everyone and everything.

* PASOS DE VALOR/STEPS OF VALOR – 18 mins:

In 1995, a pregnant MBA student, just wants to take her final exam, but her due date conflicts with the exam date and her professor won’t make any accommodations. Determined to compete and support her aspirations of creating a new heritage of wealth for her Mexican-American family, Val takes the exam despite giving birth only three days before it. Inspired by the true story of the director’s birth.

    Odyssey, held each summer in the ghastly haunted mountains of New Hampshire, is an intensive six-week workshop for aspiring writers of science fiction, fantasy, and horror.   I taught there once, years back, and witnessed first hand what an amazing experience it was… and in more recent years, I have sponsored an annual scholarship for a

    by grrm on February 25, 2020 at 9:31 pm

    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
