Film Screening

This screening is composed of five short films that range from psychological thrillers to fantasy, featuring gripping narratives, figments of imagination and a few ghostly appearances that may leave you questioning reality and feeling a bit uneasy on your return home!

Featuring some of the most poetic and visually stunning animations and cinematography of our festival, you’ll meet a struggling poet who receives a life-altering message from a strange yet familiar face, a lady with a dark secret who receives a visit from her son and his new fiancée, and a secret time portal hidden in the sand that brings a young couple together. 


DAYDREAMS AND NIGHTMARES is a part of the 2022 Film Festival Pass — the best value to see all of the 43 extraordinary films in the International Film Festival this summer from August 20 – 26.  Passes are on sale now.
