  • Are You Really The Universe?

    Alfie, a hopeless romantic, believes Effie is his forever love. In a series of nostalgia-soaked memories, we see the world through Alfie’s eyes – falling in love, moving in together, becoming the kind of comfortable that people yearn for. When the cracks start to show, is it reality seeping in? Can Alfie trust his own memories? Are you really the universe? Is an intimate, visceral exploration of love, relationships and the way we cling to the past in order to convince ourselves in the present.

  • Blame The Rabbit

    After surviving a horrific assault by her husband, Helen uses the time of his incarceration to painstakingly rebuild herself into the entity that will have the most power over him: a beautiful woman. A modern take on the Gorgon myth about what happens when you disrespect the Divine Feminine.

  • Bulldog

    Charlie and Jack play for a country footy team, and their coach’s favourite ritual is the barbaric Bulldog drills. One by one, the boys line up to get beaten and smashed into the grass. But when Charlie and Jack ritualise an after training beach recovery, they unprecedentedly develop a relationship. As this is not accepted or talked about within the hyper-masculine footy environment, the boys try and hide this, leading to anger from Charlie. But when the inevitable sighting of them together occurs, the boys have to make a choice: break or continue the silence.

  • Yeah The Boys

    Yeah the Boys follows six young Aussie men as they sink beers over an afternoon and well into the night. Emoting only through movement; lewd gestures, chokeholds, crowd surfs, and chugging shoeys, they somehow say everything without uttering a single word. Equal parts larrikin, brutal, and tender, this choreographic short film scored by The Avalanches is an observation of Australian masculine identity and our nation’s relationship with drinking culture.
