DISCONNECTED Creator: Kirsten Johnson / Canada / 2009 A series of interactive webcam video chats in different types of online relationships. Only one side of the conversation is revealed at a time and viewers can interact by switching back and forth between the two webcam perspectives. The theme of the overall film focuses on miscommunication, deception and false impressions in online discourse; the connection between space and time in relationships; and the loss of message in interactive online media. http://www.motionpieces.ca/disconnected/

82 WOMEN Directors: Megan Billman and Katrina Lencek-Inagaki / USA / 2010 / 10 min 44 s This film was born over dinner as the filmmakers discussed Kathryn Bigelow's nomination and wondered why there hadn't been more women nominated in the category of best director. The next week they set out to speak with 82 women -- one for every Oscar -- and asked them the following questions: If you had an unlimited budget to make a film, what would you make? What is your proudest professional accomplishment? Which women have inspired you? DID YOU KNOW?: "A total of 1,273 individuals are listed on IMDbPro as directors, writers, and producers of the 100 top-grossing films theatrically released in 2007. Only 17% of these jobs were filled by women: 3 female directors (109 males), 35 female writers (278 males) and 174 female producers (674 males)." http://www.telegraph21.com/video/82-women
