#EOFF2014—can you believe it? The landmark fifth edition of our humble little festival is under way and we couldn’t be more excited to present this year’s collection of films! We’ve worked hard to highlight a variety of work, and as always our curatorial project is concerned with contemporary cinema. We gravitate toward filmmakers whose projects bend conventions of form and genre, because it’s these compelling, occasionally challenging works that leave us asking questions, and ultimately move the art form forward. AND, new to this year’s program is our Online Showcase, which will be accessible for free all weekend. Thanks for joining us—we hope the program inspires YOU!
