RPG OKC Short Film

Why Watch? Bursting with imagination and sweet comedic appeal, this short from Emily Carmichael chronicles the online relationship of two fantasy video game characters. So, you guessed it, RPG OKC is short for Role Playing Game OK Cupid. Toying with the grandiose, antique language of the genre by injecting some blunt, modern questions and advice from sidekicks, the greatest achievement here (beyond the inventive style of course) is the sense of timing. The clunky old school movements and scrolling text allow Carmichael to mess with standard video game design in a way that brings awkward perfection to a tenuous, star cross’d love while treating their courtship as both realistic and epic. A clever blend of rudeness and romance.



As usual, Tribeca presented quite the diverse batch of shorts this year. There are plenty of new voices from New York City, a whole slew of international filmmakers, and a wide variety of documentary and experimental films. In the mix is some outrageous humor, heartrending human stories and a few uncompromising works of cinematic vision. Yet out of this wide selection, a handful inevitably rose right to the top. Here are the best ten short films from this year’s edition of the Tribeca Film Festival – in alphabetical order.
