MFF & Sweaty Eyeballs present GHOST STORIES with Guest Animator Scott Benson on Friday 4/18!

sweatyeyeballs2014MFF and Sweaty Eyeballs are proud to present Late Night Work Club’s GHOST STORIES with special guest animator Scott Benson for an evening of wonderful and spooky animated short films. After the screening Scott will show more of his own work and talk about the game he’s developing, Night in the Woods.

GHOST STORIES, a short animated film anthology of 11 entirely new shorts wrought by the devil himself. These cryptic tales will scare you, make you laugh, and make you run for cover. They might even teach you how to resurrect the dead right from home. So bring a notepad.

Maryland Film Festival is proud to be a sponsor of Sweaty Eyeballs, an evening of short animations by local and international artists hand-picked by curator Phil Davis, an MFF filmmaker alum who has served the Festival in several different capacities over the years (we have shown 4 of his short films including JACKHAMMER, a music video for The Spinto Band which played at our 2010 Festival).  Several filmmakers in the Sweaty Eyeballs program are also MFF alums.

Sweaty Eyeballs will have toons of all genres and styles bent toward the experimental and avant-garde. Vote for your favorite animation to win the audience choice award and participate in a flipbook drawing showdown during intermission. Mickey Mouse ears and Daffy Duck impressions welcome!
