C:/NKY>STAYFLY.exe is a night dedicated to work created by experimental filmmakers who live or work in Northern Kentucky. Pseudo-documentaries, handmade music videos, mind-bending animations – they’re all there (as you expected they would be.) Each piece is generally 10 minutes or less, so you’ll be able to fit a lot on your metaphorical experimental-film-viewing buffet plate. Come hungry for artistic excellence! Upon returning home, you will throw away your Netflix subscription and instantly download your copy of C:/NKY>STAYFLY.exe. GET READY 4 #NKYSTAYFLYdotEXE!
