A Few Programming Notes on the Red Shed Film Fest

The Red Shed Film Fest features short films across several genres; read on for a glimpse into the selection process for a few of the featured films, with notes from our Programming Coordinator, Henry Cooper.

 The Root Cellar
At this year’s Red Shed Film Festival, a procedural-crime-drama in a small southern town entitled The Root Cellar from Louisiana filmmaker Kyle Kleineck. While investigating a deadly house fire, a Police Chief and Detective try to get answers from a mysterious man who was found in a cellar under the rubble.

Devotion

Noteworthy for its long opening shot and stylized melodrama, Devotion is a Red Shed Film Festival entry that follows the turbulent journey and downward spiral of a young Californian couple suffering from drug addiction. When one decision could drastically change their future, will they make the right choice? Acting/filmmaking duo Laura Jean Marsh and Jake Unsworth send greetings from across the pond in London.
