"Ninja Zombies" Directed by Noah Cooper
Slacker geek Dameon Kim begins having nightmares -- flashes from the life of a samurai on the run and a sword that can raise the dead. When undead ninjas start attacking his friends, he discovers that the samurai was his ancestor, the sword is real, and he is the only one who can save the world from a Ninja Zombies apocalypse!
Featuring a hilarious performance by Troma President Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger), Ninja Zombies has earned several accolades from international film festivals already. These include the awards for Best Feature and Best Horror/ Comedy at the 2011 Indie Gathering and 4 nominations at the Action On Film Festival, including Action Film of the Year.

"Objects of Time" Directed by Michal Trzaska
Matt Moreland struggles to find the truth of whether his time traveling abilities are real or just a figment of his imagination.
This short film was made for the 48 Hour Film Project 2011 in the city of New Haven, CT, and was recognized by both the judges and the audience with 7 awards in total.
"Green Plastic Sandals" Directed by Stephanie Wu
In this short film, Rita is about to commit a cultural taboo: marrying outside of her ethnicity. But Rita’s parents are dead. And she can marry whomever she wishes. Or can she?
Inspired by Japanese horror classics like The Ring, Columbia student filmmakers Andres Rosende and Stephanie Wu have created a film about cultural taboo and Chinese identity. The script has already caught the attention of the Syfy network, and promises to put an eerie twist on the typical domestic drama with help from one very unrestful spirit.
