FILM FATALES PANEL: 
COLLABORATION NOT COMPETITION
 
Filmmaking can be a competitive and lonely field. Female 
directors, still drastically underrepresented in the industry, face a specific set of challenges and opportunities. How can we benefit by pooling our resources and joining together to help each other make our
films? Join these successful female directors to find out how they got their films made, the role of collaboration in their work, and how collectives like Film Fatales are helping to close the gender gap in film.
 
PARTICIPANTS: Journalist/Fatale Meredith Alloway moderates a panel of 
Fatales.  
Free panel. No tickets necessary.

MONEY
Mark (Kellan Lutz, TWILIGHT) and Sean (Jesse Williams, THE BUTLER) are best friends and successful businessmen in search of more. In their case, the "more" turns out to be over $5 million in dirty money, which they hide in Mark's basement one night just before a dinner party with their wives. When a neighbor shows up unannounced, it's all a good time until he turns out to be not quite what he seems. Twists and turns abound, violence erupts, and relationships are tested. SFF favorite Jess Weixler (last year's APARTMENT TROUBLES) turns in an especially good performance that is sure to keep you guessing.
In attendance: Jess Weixler

BOOGER RED
 
One of the most unusual films in the 2016 lineup, Berndt Mayer's BOOGER RED is an unexpected mashup of narrative and documentary filmmaking, a true crime exposé of a case possibly gone wrong, and an acting showcase for Onur Tukel (who won a Special Jury Prize at SFF in 2012 for RICHARD'S WEDDING). Tukel plays a journalist named Onur Tukel (or is he himself, posing as a journalist, because either is plausible) who travels to a small town in Texas to report on an old case in which the owners of a local swinger's club were convicted of running a child sex ring. But the case doesn't turn out to be quite that clear cut, and the truth may be even stranger and more sinister. This film is not for the faint of heart, however it rewards the brave.
In attendance: Director: Berndt Mader

THE SEEKER
The golden moments and dark undertow of a woman's life spanning from childhood to adulthood flow together in this evocative and full-hearted movie about life and loss. Nature and searching are constants in this current of images and emotion, magnetically guided by Alex McKenna's rich performance and the fusion of memories and music. Josh Radnor produced the film and plays the lead role, and the music of Cloud Cult provides the constant soundtrack to a story told without dialogue. Chad Amour's dreamlike cinematography leads the viewer into a poetic exploration worthy of Terrence Malick, and likely one of the most imaginative films you'll see at the festival all year.
In attendance: Josh Radnor
