Here is an 95-minute collection of mixed shorts (US/Canada and International) which the Nevermore committee could not live without!

BIG TOUCH: An Afro-Surrealist story about a giant woman and a tiny man who, through the power of touch, experience an unexpected transformation.

LOSE IT: On the surface, this is a short about a woman (Akyiaa Wilson) who loses her keys. Except she didn’t lose them.

FINDER: Following an environmental disaster, a man searches desperately to find a group of survivors.

FRAMES: A smart city tracks and analyzes a woman walking through the city. Things she does are interpreted and logged by the city system, but are they drawing an accurate picture of the woman?

OLD BONE: Julio plays around the field innocently and stumbles over a long, long-buried little bone. What he doesn't know is that that finding will trigger a nightmare for him and his family.

SEASONAL DEPRESSION: It's wintertime and the sun isn't coming out, so Elisa is depressed. Her friend, Vincent, does not hear it that way. He thinks she just needs to get out of her darkened apartment. Determined to prove he's right, Vincent kidnaps an elderly psychiatrist and forces her to give Elisa a "therapy session".

F*CKING GHOSTS: A parody film trailer about a family that buys a new home that is haunted by horny ghosts.

MONSTER: Nacho appears on a TV program to undergo hypnosis in order to prove that what he allegedly witnessed on the beach four years ago when his wife drowned was real.

HAMMURABI: A woman is on a mission in the desert with her beat-up Toyota Celica. Communication is hard, so she must use all the tools at her disposal to deliver an important message to a man she believes is her estranged father.

NO ONE'S LISTENING: In a dark open field, two dark-skinned immigrants on their knees pray for their life; a gang of white countrymen is set to execute them. A ghostly deaf woman with witchlike powers hears their plea and steps in.

MAKE A WISH: A light-hearted comedy about the sweetest fiancé giving her boyfriend the best birthday present ever.

BLACK ORCHID CHALLENGE: A live streamer accidentally invites an entity into her apartment.


On the surface, this is a tale about a woman (Akyiaa Wilson) who loses her keys. Except she didn’t lose them. We saw her put them in the bowl by the door. There’s no reason they shouldn’t be where she left them, but they’re not there.
