Additional Information: Lou Miguel Garzon Martinez (Los Angeles, California) In this touching short film, a man concerned with pleasing others has to deal with an unspeakable tragedy. 2017; 6 min. Melody Makers Leslie Ann Coles (Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada) A rock-doc that traces the birth of rock n' roll journalism in the 1960s, when Melody Maker magazine, the forerunner to Rolling Stone, became a pop culture phenomenon. Radiating with the energy of the time, the magazine gave space to now-legendary bands, and opened its offices to musicians who arrived, with their unreleased tracks in hands, to be interviewed by the editors and journalists who made Melody Maker a must-read for every rock fan. Capturing an evolutionary period in the history of rock n' roll, this documentary features interviews with journalists, musicians, and others who worked behind the scenes, and who witnessed both the spectacular rise and the dramatic fall of Melody Maker. 2017; 97 min. With an introduction and Q+A session with Director Leslie Ann Coles!
