Each year, following November’s Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival, a program of shorts tours the region to find new audiences and inspire new artists. Tonight the tour returns home, offering the chance to see Audrey Hall’s Painting John, a portrayal of a portrait artist’s process; Amanda Harryman’s Maikaru, about a young man overcoming his victimization from violence and human trafficking; Clancy Dennehy’s Rez Cars, which brings to life stories held within the ghosts of abandoned cars; Amy Enser and Drew Christie’s The Beast Inside, an animated tale recounting memories of homelessness told through rap; Malia Jensen’s The Bear’s Progress, which follows an inhabited bear costume wandering through the landscape doing what bears do and do not do; Marshall Axani’s Anxious Oswald Greene, about a man who visits a fantastical clinic attempting to cure his crippling anxiety; Joshua Cox’s Proximity, a tale of love and revenge told through kitschy collectibles; Mike A. Smith’s Cooped, a rambunctious cartoon about an excitable dog with cabin fever; Kyle Eaton’s Taco Night, in which two bros’ evening devolves into drinking games with a combative couple; and Evangeline LaRoque’s Dave’s Beard, which uncovers the nocturnal secret life of Dave’s adventurous whiskers.
