This week’s short film pick is actually one that we’ve discussed on the podcast before when it premiered at this year’s Slamdance Film Festival, and that’s Matthew Wade‘s Plena Stellarum. This trippy piece of animated weirdness is now screening online for free at this season’s Fandependent Film Festival, and it’s definitely worth a look.

Check it out below and consider voting for it at Fandependent.com where it’s competing for a $1000 cash prize.
