NoBudge is happy to present nine new narrative short films (including several NYC and Brooklyn premieres), a sampling of recent favorites from the film festival circuit and online premieres. Connected loosely around the theme of life not going as planned, this 92 minute block tends toward the comedic, but there are also moments of emotional resonance. A recently divorced father deals with the failure of his marriage in How It's Goin', while a visual artist reckons with the realities of not making enough money in the profound Unfinished,2017 (Mixed media). The lives of struggling artists are also tackled comedically in films such as Too Long at the Fair and Seven Dreams featuring performers with unusual approaches. Two films share a director (Doron Max Hagay, NoBudge Hall-of-Famer) while four take place in California, a visual nod to the summer screening. Screened with filmmakers in attendance for a post-film Q&A and Afterparty. NoBudge is an online platform spotlighting the best in low-budget indie filmmaking. "One of the best places to sample what's happening in low-budget cinema worldwide," says Glenn Kenny of The New York Times. Its mission is to provide a supportive home for emerging indie filmmakers working with limited resources and without major industry connections, and to be a trusted discovery platform helping audiences find their new favorite movies and filmmakers.
