Bill Brown 
Bill is a writer, a filmmaker, and an artist.  His films have screened at just about every cinema, university, and museum in the USA with his yearly traveling shows.  He covers an astonishing and amusingly diverse range of topics--including aliens from outer space (here in Roswell) and aliens from across the border (in The Other Side) - with low-fi aesthetic and an extremely personal touch. He also puts out the zine Dreamwhip.

Miranda July
Miranda is a filmmaker, artist, and writer. Her videos, performances, and web-based projects have been presented at sites such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum and in two Whitney Biennials. July wrote, directed and starred in her first feature-length film, Me and You and Everyone We Know(2005), which won a special jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival and the Camera d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. http://mirandajuly.com/
