“The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre”, my musical short film Edgar Allan Poe adaptation (say that 3 times fast) is currently playing on-line as part of the New York Lift-Off Film Festival through the month of July.

For a $12 pass you can watch over 100 short films, and then vote for your favorite too – hint hint.

Tickets are available for purchase via Liftoff.network/new-york-lift-off-film-festival-2022/ – Choose the Judges’ Select Shorts program.

The direct checkout link for P&P’s Vimeo program is the one to “Judges’ Selects Shorts”:


From the festival: “JUDGES’ SELECT SHORTS” features shorts highlighted by the jury as daring and sometimes experimental; we are proud to bring you content from these outstanding filmmakers.”

“The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre” is #31 on the list of all participating short films in the Judges Select Shorts.

Once you have purchased your pass, you can watch films all month long.

Including “The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre”. You can watch it once, twice, thrice…. (but you can vote for it only once).

Oh … and if you are watching on your laptop, I recommend using earbuds or headphones to get an even more dramatic sound mix experience.
