The Synesthesia Film Festival is a new monthly screening night with a networking vibe. The focus is on short films, and the group aims to "bring an eclectic mix of media and filmmakers together to mingle, share ideas, and collaborate on future projects." There is a meet-and-greet before the screening, a Q&A with chosen filmmakers after the show, and a casual after-party where the crew will tally up the votes for the Audience Choice Award. As for the films, it's definitely an eclectic mix. Biting Elbows' music video Bad Motherfucker is violent, jarring, and bloody. Side Effected features a hapless young fellow pitching a bad idea to a grumpy, older man in a boardroom, with a twist ending worthy of The Twilight Zone. There are some award-winning shorts scattered among the lineup as well. Cockatoo and Cicada Princess made the Vimeo staff picks list, and Vacuity won a "seeds" award from Celtx in 2012.
