MAINLAND (dir. Ian Bibby, 2014, 20 min.) Chris–a spirited but aimless young man in his early 20′s–has left the confines of the city to spend the winter alone on a secluded island in Maine. Instead of being productive with his time off the grid, Chris prefers to goof around outdoors and do whatever he pleases–anything that will allow him to sidestep his thoughts of looming adulthood. But as the outside world begins to unravel into a confusing and seemingly dangerous chaos, his haven begins to feel anything but safe. Chris must quickly discover the inner strength to face an outside world growing darker by the day, or risk becoming consumed by the very real threats closing in all around him.
