Crave – December 6, 2013

dir. Charles de Lauzirika
A man struggles to cope with life’s annoyances and romances, while trying to distinguish between fantasy and reality.


Diamond on Vinyl – December 1, 2013

dir. J.R. Hughto
Henry’s fiancee Beth kicks him out after discovering his audio recordings of their intimate life and his confession that he may no longer love her. After Beth confides in Charlie, a compassionate stranger, Charlie entangles herself in the couple’s lives by helping Henry rehearse the perfect sequence of words that will regain Beth’s trust. Charlie and Henry’s recordings of imagined conversations become a game where intimacy and identity may be real or imagined.


Khumba – December 6, 2013

dir. Anthony Silverston
Rejected by his superstitious herd, a half-striped zebra embarks on a daring quest to earn his stripes but finds the courage and self-acceptance to save all the animals of the Great Karoo.


Bet Raise Fold – December 1, 2013

dir. Ryan Firpo
BET RAISE FOLD tracks the origins and evolution of the Internet poker industry during the 2000s and its impact on a new generation of poker professionals. It examines the conflict between the US government and online gambling that eventually led to ‘Black Friday,’ the government shutdown of online poker in the United States. The rise and fall of the billion dollar industry is woven with the lives of three major characters: Danielle, a young mother from Minnesota who used online poker to support her family; Tony, a polyamorous Las Vegas tournament pro who hosts the World Poker Tour on television; and Martin, a math genius and poker savant from Australia who used his poker winnings to travel the world.
