George the Hedgehog
It is a movie about a hedgehog. A skateboarding hedgehog that likes to drink beer. A skateboarding hedgehog that likes to drink beer and is thwarted by neo-nazi skinheads, mad scientists and a drooling, flatulent clone of himself.

The FP
An underground war between two groups rages in Frazier Park, with dominance determined by the dancing videogame Beat-Beat Revelation. Best dance movie ever made? Maybe.

A film about a father telling his son the most epic bedtime story ever.

Scenes From The Suburbs
Spike Jonze’s film inspired by the album The Suburbs. Watch the trailer.

100 Bands In 100 Days
A music fan watches 100 live shows in 100 consecutive nights, possibly loses mind.

Lost Every Day
A woman wakes up every day lost because a medical condition makes it seem as if her walls moved overnight.

A film about a lovable crustacean of mixed origin that struggles to escape his underwater home when it becomes threatened by pollution. Heartbreaking environmental story or just plucky story of perseverance?

Dinosaur Ballet

Jeremy Messersmith, “Tatooine”
The original Star Wars trilogy in cut paper animation. Sounds a little like something awesome.

Hunger or love, which is stronger?
