From a friendship on the brink of collapse when one man kidnaps the object of his roommate’s affection, to a mother’s sinister tale about her child’s late-night penchant for ice cream, Round II of the 2018 Short Film Slam delivered plenty of twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat.

A big thank you goes out to the filmmakers, The Sci Fi Center, Madlab Film Club members, and everyone who participated in the Short Film Slam: Round II. Our audience, which included staff from other film festivals, voted on each film using a scale of 1 through 5. The Finalist was chosen based on the total points the film received from all votes.

Congratulations to Tanya Huston, whose comedy film Reality Check is the Winner for Round II and will advance to the next round as a Finalist nominated for the Best Short Film Award. Her film also received the most votes of any title in the Wild Card category and is crowned the Movie of the Month. Runner ups to the Finalist include Saman Hosseinpuor’s family drama The Last Embrace and Harrison Trigg’s romantic drama Reservation for Two. Runner up for Movie of the Month is Tyler Yarbro’s comedy A Christmas Dinner.

Here are all the Short Film Slam: Round II films and their rankings.
