Announcing the Sploid Short Film Festival

As Disinfo’s 5am Film Series has been mildly successful, I thought readers would be interested in Sploid’s Short Film Festival. They’re still accepting submissions (until Oct. 31) and viewers can vote by liking the films on YouTube.

For more information on this, go here.

As of this post, here are the films that are currently showing (at least one of these has been featured here).


Zerogon is a lonely creature, from a lonely planet, who becomes abducted into the false allure of a computer generated world.

Directed by John Mattiuzzi and Joshua Planz.

Short Film: Horde

So, it’s official: 5am EST will be the new time for me to host my “short film series.” I can’t guarantee that I’ll have post every morning at 5, but I’ll do my best. It can be hard to find quality films sometimes, luckily the Vimeo Staff Picks helps me out a bit. I’m also open to suggestions from Disinfo readers.

Today’s film is Horde from Brutus Collective:

“The Trail’s End” – Bonnie and Clyde: An Android Love Story

“The Trail’s End” is only about 10 minutes long, but it’s worth a watch. The visuals are fantastic and it gives the old Bonnie and Clyde story a futuristic vibe.

I often feel that short films don’t get the recognition that they deserve. So, expect to be seeing more here on Disinfo. Submissions are always welcome.

Via the film’s Vimeo Page:

“On the final day of his life, an android has an unexpected encounter that alters the course of his existence. THE TRAIL’S END is a short film written and directed by David Rosenbaum that explores a re-telling of a classic; Bonnie and Clyde…or rather the prologue. It highlights the moment that the two meet and how their journey together begins. Sometimes the end, is just the beginning.”
