Sally thinks she is pretty popular, until she finds out she is the only one of her friends who has not had their very own stalker.

Smoke and LIghts
(Aaron Goldberg)

Aaron Goldberg, Smoke and Lights, video, 2002, 8 mins 36 secs.
Darren, Fiona, Joe and Anne are 4 young adults driving home after a big night out. They decide to stop off near an airport runway to watch aeroplanes and smoke marijuana. Darren talks about seeing UFOs while getting stoned, much to the displeasure of his temperamental girlfriend Fiona. After getting stoned they continue on home, only to have the car stall on them in the middle of nowhere. An argument breaks out, but when Fiona notices some lights in the distance, it seems that everything is OK. Or is it?

Tony Woods, The Desired For, Super-8 film, 2003, 14 mins.
A way of framing the many formal and conceptual ideas on which the making of my film art is based….

No War (Moira Joseph)

Moira Joseph, No War, Super-8 film/video, 2003, 12 mins.
During April and May 2003, thousands of people from a multitude of religious denominations and community groups took to the streets of Melbourne to protest against Australia's involvement with the war in Iraq.

Anne Scott, Gushing, video, 2003, 3 mins.
My video work is an investigation of sound and image and the relationship between them. Water gushing has an emotional resonance in its explosive movement which is an analogue for the motion of sound waves, echoed by the sound accompanying the image. The rushing and gushing is also reflected in the emotion of the viewer, who cannot resist being pushed along with the energy and pace of the waves seeing an echo in the sound and in the image.

Dean McInerney, Mungo Passage, Super-8 film, 1997, 4 mins.
An expedition through an ancient cultural site adopts and mimics the passage of the red kangaroo. An unconscious act that reproduces the hunters dreaming of the hunted.

AUDIENCE VOTES: At the end of the screening, audience voting forms were handed out, asking people to nominate their three favourite films of the night. Aaron Goldberg, Smoke and Lights, 9 votes; Matthew Rees, Stalkers Inc., 5 votes; Rusden Students, Into the Woods, 5 votes.
