Niagara Shorts Program

SUNNY DAYS AHEAD
Canada, 2021. Directed by Josh Loewen, Alex Sykes. 40 min. NR
It’s the end of highschool and best buds Walt and Pete are making a movie all about Walt’s life. It’s our pure joy, and pure fear of what the future could hold, through the eyes of a couple 12th graders with video cameras staring into their post graduation abyss. They explore a variety of genres from stop motion to western to try and figure out their futures. Also there’s a giraffe.
Filmmakers Alex Sykes and Josh Loewen, grew up in Niagara and continue to find inspiration in the forests and waters of the region. Niagara is an essential part of our work, it’s where we have grown as artists and we believe our work currently and in the future will always reflect that.
Canada, 2020. Directed by Derrick Glen. 7 min. NR
Two friends with a working rabbit’s foot witness a mob murder. The film was shot locally in St. Catharines, Stevensville and Welland, with cast and crew from across Niagara.
SUNSHINE EXPRESS PRESENTS: INTRO TO THE POSSE
Canada, 2021. Directed by Matt Jaekel. 10 min. PG
Sunshine Express, a local vaporwave and rock n roll band, have to sell a lot of tickets for their upcoming show at the big time Rock Show Club. No problem, right? Well, yes. Yes problem: the band has no fans, no money, and no clout–not even a single view on YouTube! Will the power of Posse be enough to pull the boys through? (Chapter 1 of a feature-length anthology series)
Matt Jaekel is a St. Catharines based musician, filmmaker, and multimedia artist. He recently founded the local record label Routine Exploits. Sunshine Express is a St. Catharines based vaporwave rock band.
