TOWELS by Prawta Annez
Territory can be claimed in many different ways, be it borders or walls.
In summer, however, it's towels.
"Designed and written during the tense political climate of 2017, with the beginning of Brexit and Trump's inauguration, this short was a way to express my inner frustrations and reflections at the time.
However, it is interesting that there may be some parallels to our current situation in 2020.
I hope this short can be 4 minutes of fun and escapism for anyone who watches it, no matter where they may be or whatever they may be going through." - Prawta A.
Tomorrow’s On Fire by Oh Yeah Wow
Created in direct response to the Australian Bushfire crisis, Darcy Prendergast's new film #TomorrowsOnFire is a rallying cry for hope, in a country increasingly scarce of it.

I’m angered, incensed, enraged and fed up.
With you lazy, ignorant fossil fool chumps
You’ve sold out our nation, and served up division
Whilst it’s grief stricken people, scream at deaf politicians
And it’s not just the humans— our animals fry
While you coal hearted arsonists, continue to thrive.
On our future you wager, without heed nor concern
Just misinformation, while our backyards burn
You elected officials hold aloft lumps of coal,
With the pride of an Olympian, who’s just won gold
From up high on ye’ podium, you silence dissenters
What we’ve come to expect, from you bald one percenters
You should be disgraced, and thrown headfirst from office.
Do not pass go, do not stock mining coffers.
Instead you drive narratives, of left vs right,
Whilst you all fear, what the middle just might.
So rally together, love strong and rage stronger
So that life on this planet, can last some time longer.
Tomorrow’s on fire, and the sky it bleeds crimson.
So it’s about time, we made our tax dollars listen.
