Canyon | Ultimate (Director’s Cut)*

Directed by Harrison Mendel

“Andrew [Judah] has been a vital collaborator for me with almost every project I take on. It was a no-brainer for this one, I knew he would willing to go back and forth with me through multiple revisions, and that’s exactly what we did. I think we have developed a great working relationship where I can give him notes and ideas but also trust him to put his touch on the project.” —Harrison Mendel

Marnics Mobile | Escape to Marnics

Produced by Westfort Productions

“The most gratifying part of this project was working with my 93-year-old grandfather. Before this, he had zero experience on camera. When I told him we would have a body double for the truck scene, he looked at me and asked: ‘What makes you think I can’t do my own stunts?’ So yeah, that’s him riding in the box of a truck.” —Matt Popowich

Official Selections: Experimental Film

Boston Ballet | Memory Palace

Produced by No Frames

“The moment I heard ‘Visible’ by Why We Wonder, I knew I had found the perfect track for Memory Palace. The song felt both fragile and powerful at the same time, and those elements, combined with the song’s gradual build, beautifully complemented the lead character’s internal journey. The song was also a perfect counterbalance to the archival recording of Alan Watts, adding emotional impact to the story while never overpowering his voice.” – Mikko Timonen

Look Up, Ron*

Directed by Dylan Wineland

“The songs in this film were key to accentuating the deep emotion of the story. However, while I needed melancholy music for the sad parts of the film, I also needed lighthearted music to help balance it out so that it wasn’t just one sad tone the whole way through.” —Dylan Wineland
