V is for 5: Indie Flicks for Your Valentine’s Fix

Whether you have a date with flowers, chocolate and a candlelit dinner or pizza by the glow of your laptop screen, Valentine’s Day is a great day for movies. Here are 5 films for if you’re short on love or just short on time.

Foolishly Seeking True Love

Written and directed by: Jarrett Lee Conaway

Two ships passing in the night, in a French bar, while a man narrates their lives. Almost like a trailer for a movie that wouldn’t be any good. As a short, it works perfectly.


The Girl on the Wall

Writer/Director/Producer: Gabriel Psaltakis

This short about a bored man and two piece of graffiti in love is charming and comes with a great little message at the end for any man who is looks to charm a girl.

Warning: This is in Greek, and there are subtitles.


It’s a Treat

Written, Edited & Directed by: Luke Mayze

When a speed date is hijacked by an ex with food on the brain, things get more than a little awkward. One for the cynics as it’s more funny than romantic.


Storefront

Written and directed by: Colby Day

Lauren finds herself homeless following a bad breakup and rents a vacant storefront to live in while she sells off everything that reminds her of him. She’s not looking for love, but that doesn’t mean it won’t find her.


Brink

Directed by: Shawn Christensen

In the earth’s final hours, a man confesses to the girl he has always loved. Beautifully shot with some hauntingly surreal slow motion shots. This is not your typical love story.
