Movies in Dolores Park

Went to Dolores Park last night and watched the 10 best short movies from the 48 hour film project. Teams of moviemakers are given a genre, line, character and prop to use in making a movie between 4 and 7 minutes long, and only 48 hours to make it.

There was a real mix of style in the movies shown, but like one of my friends said, some of it was very San Francisco. I liked almost all the movies and got a good laugh from many of them. The winner of best film also won best direction, I believe it was called "Niedergang". It was a silent film that was dark and funny, with a moral to the story. The ending confused me though, I wasn't really sure what was going on.
