Synopsis & Film Details
The American independent coming-of-age comedy Tiny Furniture won Best Feature Film at the 2010 South by Southwest festival. The movie follows 22-year-old Aura, who returns home to her artist mother’s Tribeca loft in lower Manhattan with the following: a useless film theory degree, 357 hits on her YouTube page, a boyfriend who has left her to find himself at Burning Man, and a dying hamster. Luckily, her trainwreck childhood best friend never left home, the restaurant down the block is hiring, and ill-advised romantic possibilities lurk around every corner. Before the movie, Filmworks will present four festival awards, including juried awards for Best Short Film and the second annual John Kelly Award for Excellence in Cinematography, as well as audience awards for Best Short Film and Best Feature Film.
