After serving in the Vietnam War, author and eco-warrior Doug Peacock spent years alone in the Wyoming and Montana wilderness observing grizzly bears. This time in the wild changed the course of his life. With the protection of Yellowstone grizzlies now under threat, Peacock reflects on the importance of habitat and why he continues to fight for wild causes.

Actress @annacordell (above) and director @thepunctum have collaborated on four unforgettable shorts. RUBBER HEART played The Crush in 2017 and NORMALIZE in 2018. We sure hope they are working on something new for 2020. They are a formidable, inspirational pair of artists, their work challenges our perceptions of the norm and embraces our need for connection.

@writeriguez served as juror for our Best Short Screenplay Award in 2018, now I wouldn’t be surprised if he winds up with some Emmy nods of his own for his scripting for @showtime’s upcoming series, AMERICAN RUST, starring Jeff Daniels and based on the Phillip Meyer novel.

A very happy birthday to @claudia.murdoch who produced the near-future, yet absolutely timely short, THE INVADERS (directed by @mateo_marq) which screened at The Movie Crush in 2018.

You needn’t poll your friends to determine @thefosterwilson’s MADE PUBLIC is one of the sweetest, yet sharpest takedowns of our commitment-phobic, social-media-cuckolded selves. It was a hit at @themoviecrush this summer and now you can enjoy it on @vimeo: https://vimeo.com/343986585

The longest, loudest ovation at @themoviecrush this year was probably for Hameed, the subject of @aimievallat’s skillfully-sculpted short doc, #thisbeinghuman. Honored to have had Hameed on hand for an unforgettable Q&A.
Many thanks to @steve__korn for this edition of The Movie Crush portrait gallery.
Even if you could splice together the DNA of #marytylermoore, @sarahkatesilverman, @melissavcomedy and @glennclose, we’re still not sure you’d come close to recreating @stephbarkley who boasts charm, comedic chops, impressionist skills and some serious acting mojo. Plus, she writes and directs.
Thrilled @steve__korn captured one of her thousand faces for @themoviecrush portrait gallery.

THE PERFECT FLIGHT soars, a flawless short doc that liberates both man and falcon. Moviemaker Joshua Izenberg lovingly tracks the two with graceful camerawork and captures their majestic spirits.

A strong argument could be made for THUNDER ROAD being one of the funniest #shortfilms of the past five years. But today, we’re curious what YOU think is the funniest short film of all time?!? Answer below. One respondent will win a prize!

Whether you are pro-life, pro-choice or just pro-discourse, we encourage you to watch @ginapollack’s troubling short doc, UNDUE BURDEN, an eye-opening look at how Draconian legislation for abortion clinics impacts the women who seek their services.
UNDUE BURDEN was a finalist for @themoviecrush Best Documentary Short in 2017.
We certainly didn’t discover #theduplassbrothers, but Warren was among the first few curators to champion their work. About 17 years ago, he programmed THIS IS JOHN, the second film by @markduplass and @jayduplass, for the 1 Reel Film Festival (at Bumbershoot). And it’s just as funny today. Check it out on YouTube.

Carlos Garcia de Dios made a short, SUBWAY, that made Warren cry. Why? Because it is such a perfectly executed vision. Many thanks to @steve__korn for capturing the moviemaker for the @themoviecrush’s 2019 portrait gallery.

16-year-old @rican.amor made her film debut in @hannahloganpeterson’s lyrical life-slice, @eastoftheriverfilm.
