I had never been to The Fridge before. In fact, I’ve only vaguely heard of The Fridge until Panda Head (blog/magazine/ideal lifestyle) announced their first ever END OF SUMMER BUMMER film night. And when I saw how quickly The Fridge filled up on Saturday night, I felt rather silly for being so oblivious. The overflowing room was treated to 17 summer-themed short films from long-time local directors and newbies alike. Each featured a strikingly different portrayal of summer, expressed through numerous styles and soundtracks, and performances by our favorite local celebrities. As these trippy, witty, and eye-popping films progressed, we nearly began to say our goodbyes to summer– that is, until we stepped back out into the Eastern Market humidity.
Let’s have a round of applause for the participants: Erik Loften, Otessa Ghadar, Stephanie Breijo, Rory Sheridan, Raul Zahir De Leon, Chløe Maratta, Nelson A. Cuellar, Zach Clark, The President Wears Prada, Mike Del Rey, Floyd York, Morgan Hungerford West, and the WHEN ANIMALS RE-ENACT Crew.
Without further ado, here are some photos for your viewing pleasure:
