Mr. Roosevelt
– After escaping the “velvet rut” of Austin to pursue a comedy career in LA, Emily returns to deal with a cat—and life—crisis. Writer-director Noël Wells (Master of None) stars in Mr. Roosevelt, her endearingly weird and funny debut, an autobiographical ode to 21st-century twenty something angst, the winner of audience and jury awards at SXSW.

I Still Hide To Smoke is the debut feature from Franco-Algerian director and playwright Rayhana, featuring an all-female cast. In this tight, tense, and riveting drama, award-winning actress Hiam Abbass (In Syria; The Lemon Tree, MVFF 2008) is a head masseuse at an Algerian women’s hammam (bathhouse) that serves as both warm sanctuary and steamy political crucible for a group of culturally and religiously diverse women over the course one momentous day. In Arabic and French.
