SECRETS of INNER SPACE will examine our frame of entropy. We will delve inward, into our innermost oceans. Above the entrance to the Oracle at Delphi were inscribed these words: "Know Thyself." Was this a taunt? Know thyself or no thyself? Secrets of Inner Space will meet this challenge with 5 to 10 minute films of any genre (narrative, documentary, experimental, music video, animation) shot anytime and anywhere that are about looking within, engaging either mind, body, blood and/or spirit.

The Secrets Film Festival is an annual event in NYC and California featuring short films centered around a common theme. Over the past five years, the Secrets film series have explored outer space, insects, love, dreams, death, and the intoxicated life. Secrets festivals have screened in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Baltimore, DC, Los Angeles, Kentucky, and at the Berkeley Video and Film Festival 2018 and 2019.

    So proud to have my film Come Sweet Earth 1234 screened at this year's Secrets of Outer Space. Jeff is a sensational organizer and I respect his efforts to bring a unique cinematic and narrative vision to New York, Brookyln and Berkeley. The networking is terrific and many of us met one another through the excellent FB page dedicated to this festival. Very thankful for all! Thanks!

    Had a great time at this event, it was intimate, easy going and had a cool underground vibe to it. I've been consistently amazed and grateful for the continued work that Jeffrey does throughout the year to promote and screen the films at other venues and cities. Such a good community.
