One of the featured films, Jeffie Was Here.
Sorry to nitpick...but Ken Marino was a member the of the great MTV sketch comedy show The State, not Kids in the Hall. Being a fan of both shows, I thought I should point this out. I mean, c'mon, one troupe was Canadian for corn's sake

Nope, IMDB has no Kids in The Hall appearance credits to Mr. Marino. I'll leave it at that before I come off like the Comic Book Store Guy. (Worst. Publicist. Ever.)
Nick, looks like you are totally right. That information has been corrected above. Thanks for the eyes, and my apologies for my confusion earlier.
