ROMEO IS BLEEDING
 
A decades-long turf war between Central and North Richmond gangs have created a looming atmosphere of danger and violence in Richmond, California. From North Richmond, Danté Clark seeks to end the violence through education and poetry. Clark applied his skills and passion to help create RAW Talent, a group of underprivileged youth using spoken word and slam poetry to address the unspoken real experiences and issues that plague their lives. In a modern adaptation of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" that parallels his hometown's turf war, Clark hopes to inspire those around him to address and bring a voice to the internal and unspoken violence that encompass the residents' lives. In attendance: Producer Michael Klein

ACTING FOR FOR TELEVISION PANEL
 
Many argue that television is catching up to film as the most influential medium of our time. But acting for the small screen is often very different from acting for the big screen. Not only have all three of our panelists acted in high profile series, they have each acted in and directed or produced indie films.
 
PARTICIPANTS: Josh Radnor (HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER), Caitlin Fitzgerald(MASTERS OF SEX), Jamie Anne Allman (THE KILLING)
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

ABOVE AND BELOW

One of the most talked about documentaries on the festival circuit, Nicolas Steiner's sophomore effort is an ode to the American desert and a look at five individuals living there, marginalized by modern society. Three of them live in the drainage canals beneath Las Vegas; one lives a solitary existence in the middle of the desert; one participates in daily simulations of space missions, determined to be the first woman on Mars. Steiner has a documentary master's sensitivity and care for his subjects and a cinematographer's eye for composition. There's a lot of ugliness in ABOVE AND BELOW, to be sure. But there's an awful lot of beauty too.
 
In attendance: 
Director: Nicolas Steiner, Production Manager: Laura Killian
