Consignment, a film by Justin Hannah
The year is 1954, and a lonely young woman yearns for the return of the man who left her alone. When an encounter at a consignment shop leads to the discovery of an ominous box, it seems that happiness may finally be within her grasp. However, a glimpse into another world reveals that all may not be as clear as it once seemed....

Bizarnival, a film by Walk Softly Films
In the shadows of a musty attic, inside a magic suitcase, guarded by a mechanical man...lies a secret. Three men seek the key and journey through the ridiculously fantastic world of Bizarnival. Winner of Best Narrative Short at River's Edge International Film Festival, and Best US Short at the Derby City Film Festival.

Age/Sex/Location, a film by Jeremy Midkiff and Jonathan Moore
A mockumentary set in small-town Kentucky about the most awkward Myspace party ever thrown. Rob Bronson (the owner of a pyramid scheme) threw the party, but only one person stayed - Ova Reynolds (who raises cock fighting roosters). An unlikely friendship blossoms before our eyes.

Sour Notes, a film by Jesse Harris
A young, wild child wedding singer, Emily Mills, must mentor a 10-year-old girl, Sally Napier, on the same day she's scheduled to sing at her ex-boyfriend's wedding.

Watch Me, a film by Lee Clements and Erin Picone
