"It's always really difficult deciding which experimental films to highlight when every one that makes it into the festival challenges me about how film can be pulled and stretched in different directions, but these are the ones that pulled my ears the hardest and stretched my eyes right out of my head. I couldn't ignore them, and you shouldn't either!"
