This event has passed.

HIFF is pleased to continue the tradition of promoting the work of our talented and passionate Atlantic filmmakers. HIFF 2018 includes 2 diverse programs of 21 short films made by filmmakers from the Atlantic provinces. This year’s line-up features emerging and established filmmakers working in animation, narrative, music videos, comedy, and experimental works.

Atlantic Auteurs - Program Two: 68 mins

The diverse selection showcased in Atlantic Auteurs - Program Two includes Wintering, a thoughtful take on beekeeping made by Keelin Jack through the CFAT Media Arts Scholarship program, as well as new work from HIFF alumni Josh Owen, Billy’s Behemoth Blast - an astonishingly detailed, mind-bending animation. The Importance of Dreaming by Tara Audibert is another animation with a completely different but just as effective style, playfully immersing the viewer into a lush world of woodland creatures. Featuring natural and complex performances by the young cast, Daniel Boos’ Thug tells the thought-provoking story of how far an actor will go to get a role. In contrast to this drama, the subversive dark horror/comedy Dogged by Nicole Steeves & Struan Sutherland will surprise and shock you with its twisted ending! There is something for everyone in this exciting collection of new shorts.
