Highlights include Eric Khoo’s clever take on I Lost My Head; Momorobo’s beautifully-illustrated music video for Futon, Strap It On; as well as the premiere of new work like Russel Zehnder’s I Saw Jesus, shot entirely on Super-8, Critica’s motion design gem, Blassic, and a documentary-short on design-collective, Faille.

To be held at Velvet Underground, the inaugural RESFEST Audience Choice Awards will reward the most popular local films from this year’s festival. The winning filmmaker with the most votes will be presented with the coveted RES-Director’s Chair and other prizes.
