Tonight will feature “Dream Giver” and “Inuk,” beginning at 8 p.m.

“Dream Giver” is a six-minute American animation where a long-legged dream giver must save a child from his nightmare.

“Inuk,” which runs 89 minutes, follows a 16-year-old as he sets out on an epic journey from a chaotic family life in Greenland’s capital city to the nurturing silences of the arctic sea ice.

Tomorrow will feature “Knock Knock,” “Pom Pom,” “Nullarbor” and “Sedona.” The event will also begin at 8 p.m.

“Knock Knock” is a nine-minute American film where a young woman receives an unexpected visitor when her birth mother knocks on her door. “Pom Pom” is a six-minute French animation and “Nullarbor” is a 10-minute animation from Australia.

“Sedona,” which is 90 minutes long and named for the town that the film is set in, stars Seth Peterson from “Providence,” Christopher Atkins from “Blue Lagoon” and Frances Fisher from “Titanic.”
