Screenings

Flux, Spring 2024

  • This is a past program

The Flux screening series brings the creative community together to celebrate outstanding short films and music videos from around the globe, with wildly inventive filmmaker presentations and performances.

In celebration of Lunar New Year, this year’s winter program commences with the innovative animation Our Uniform, by Iranian director Yegane Moghaddam, an Oscar-nominated short film. Additionally, two humorous music videos exploring altered states of consciousness will be presented: Erin Murray's virtual reality romp for Bambina's Anyway U Want It and director Parker Seaman's trip for Dillon Francis' LA on Acid. From the esteemed Sundance Film Festival, attendees will have the opportunity to see Border Hopper by Nico Casavecchia, a thought-provoking commentary on the absurdities of the US immigration bureaucracy. Furthering the contemplation of New Year’s resolutions, Paul Trillo's Notes To My Future Self delves into our persistent optimism in the face of the unknown. Returning to Flux, Carlos Lopez Estrada, renowned for his feature films such as Blindspotting, Raya, and The Last Dragon, presents a new music video titled Practice for Jamila Woods.

The eclectic lineup of films includes comedy, dance, documentary, music, and animation and features new music videos for Khruangbin, Tom Odell, Yvnnis, and more.

Special in-person guests include Carlos Lopez Estrada, Cassie Marin, Erin Murray, Nico Casavecchia, Parker Seaman, and Paul Trillo. A courtyard after-party follows with special guest DJ FRIKI FRAN.
