IndieFlix Pick – The Adventures of Owen

One of the many online services we offer at Cheshire Library is IndieFlix. IndieFlix gives you access to thousands of streaming movies (full length, shorts and documentaries) from independent filmmakers and more than 2,000 film festivals worldwide, including SXSW, Sundance, Cannes, and Slamdance.   Indieflix curates the best (or possibly the weirdest, depending on your taste) from worldwide film festivals to make sure indies have an audience.

All you need to access these films is a Cheshire Library Card and a broadband internet-connected device. No checkouts, returns, or waiting. Multiple users can watch the same film on different devices at the same time.

Our IndieFlix Pick this month is The Adventures of Owen.  In this short film, a socially awkward little boy discovers that he can express himself through his illustrations of Spaceman X. However, his insecurities hold him back as he attempts to impress his classmate Lisa. Live action with animated sequences, from Canada by director David Cadiz. Here’s the trailer:

IndieFlix is available on all internet-enabled computers, tablets including iPad and Android, and smartphones through a web browser. Many films are also available on Roku and Xbox. These films are not rated by the MPAA, so viewer discretion is advised. Try IndieFlix and let us know what you think!
