Tao Ruspoli (Fix) (Writer/Director) 

     Shot in the first person by the actors themselves, Fix is a one-day odyssey through the myriad worlds of Los Angeles. Documentary filmmakers Bella and Milo race to get Milo’s brother, Leo, from jail to rehab before 8 pm, or Leo will go to prison for three years. Inspired by true events, the film follows the trio as they document their trip from a suburban police station through mansions in Beverly Hills, east LA chop shops, rural wastelands and housing projects in Watts as they attempt to raise the $6,000 deposit required to get Leo into the rehab clinic. In the end, it may take a drug deal to get the necessary cash for rehab. 

Peter Campbell and Art Holbrook (Killer Whale and Crocodile) (Writer/Director/Producers) 

     A celebration of the coming together of two indigenous cultures – the Coast Salish of British Columbia and the Iatmul of Papua New Guinea, through the shared medium of carving. 

Lucy Massie ix (Don't Know We'll See: The Work Of Karen Karnes) (Writer, Director, Editor) 

     Exploring the mystery of the creative process, the life and work of a master clay artist, Karen Karnes, who has worked with unbroken focus for over 60 years. A pioneer of the 20th century craft movement, Karnes worked uninterrupted until a fire destroyed her home and studio, and the kiln, full of luminous unbroken pieces, was the only structure left standing. This film is about not-knowing and discovery, and about the evolution of form in a body of work over a life time. It is an invitation to enter the creative process, to give the eyes and ears a feast and to be astonished by beauty.
