Since the coronavirus pandemic started, there have been many turns of phrase that have been repeated ad nasueum. One of those is the well-intentioned (or is it?) phrase "We Are All In This Together." I decided to look at those words and think about things a bit more intimately, changing it to "We Are In This Together." These stories are about partnerships: marriage, significant others, and the like. As with the short film block about families, you will see that some films will address this phrase with irony, and others will address it with sincerity. All of them use human bonds as the center of either anxiety or hope.

Director: Patrick Andrew Higgins began studying all aspects of film production at a very young age, starting with making short films and putting on plays during kindergarten. Over the years he honed the powerful visual style which he brings to all his projects, as well as his formidable storytelling ability.

Patrick has worked in both the studio and independent movie world, helming several feature length films including the psychological thriller Sickness House. As a director, his dark comedy feature film Under the Gun earned the "Official Selection" at the New York Independent Film Festival in Los Angeles and "Best Feature Length Comedy" at the MiniDV Festival. As a writer, he has worked for many independent feature film companies, including NuLight Productions and Mosaic Films. He also adapted The Book of Skulls for the SyFy network.

With bold and unique story telling coupled with an incredible compelling vision, Patrick brings a dramatic and phonological realism to a genre that often lacks that level of care and depth. Playing off established horror archetypes, Patrick is able to bring a new, edgy vision to the horror world while maintaining textured and interesting characters.
