Join Oolite Arts for Close Quarter Commissions, a micro-film festival featuring short works by 12 Miami filmmakers in quarantine. The event will be followed by a conversation with the filmmakers.
Commissioned by Oolite Arts, the filmmakers worked with little to paint the vast, emotional landscape of this moment in time. Their works – both documentary and narrative – are wide-ranging in topic. They feature a first-person view of giving birth during a pandemic, COVID conspiracy theories and the challenges of both unemployment and working at home with young children. Some stories reflect the time in quarantine, while others are ideas filmmakers had long wanted to tell.
