Cindy's New Boyfriend was directed by Robert Brinkmann, the Hollywood cinematographer who will be helping to judge the next FILMSshort competition. In his comic film, Cindy is the ex-girlfriend of Spencer, who persuades his friend Nick to use his acting talent to scare off Cindy's new boyfriend. However, things go wrong when Cindy's new boyfriend turns out to be a man not easily scared.
Written and directed by FILMSshort competition winner Chris Keller, 20 Hz played at many horror film festivals, proving he can turn his hand to various genres. The idea behind this horror short film is that, if human hearing is only capable of detecting sound waves between 20 and 20,000 Hz, then there are sounds around us that are going unnoticed. What if one of these unheard sounds was a warning that something nasty was lurking close by?
