“Short Story Film Showcase” features 10 short films that have been produced within the past three years and are all unique in their own ways, whether they’re thought-provoking, hilarious, or just plain strange. In the Underground Film Journal’s opinion, the work of Neil Ira Needleman is usually all those things at once. Here’s the full list of films that will be screening:

REGENTAZ, dir. John Psathas (8 min.)
THE GROUP, dir. Boris Wexler (19 min.)
SMALL COMFORTS, dir. Hannah Dallman (10 min.)
LAWN ORNAMENTS, dir. John Boston (3:30 min.)
THE BOOBY TRAP, dir. Eric Bednarowicz (10 min.)
CORNER DELANCEY, dir. Neil Ira Needleman (7:45 min.)
BOOTLEGGED, dir. Colleen McGann (5 min.)
THE JACKET, dir. Neil Blakemore (9:30 min.)
SQUARE PEGS, dir. Ben Hicks (20 min.)
KING AND THE BEAR, dir. John Psathas (1:30 min.)
