    Your Cheatin' Heart

Shot over the course of a single night, RedBlack is a taut, sexy, dream-like journey with a shocking climax. Written and directed by Mal Woolford. Cast: Molly Ryman and Anthony Barclay.

    Across the Hall
    A quiet night takes a dangerous turn when Julian receives a frantic phone call from his best friend, Terry. Terry claims to have followed his unfaithful fiancée, June, to a seedy hotel on the other side of town. To make matters worse, he's staked out the room across the hall from her, a bottle of whiskey in one hand and a revolver in the other. Julian pleads with his friend to stay put while he rushes to avert disaster. But is Terry truly as desperate as he sounds or has Julian been playing into his hands all along? Written, directed and edited by Alex Merkin. Principal cast: Adrian Grenier (HBO's Entourage), James Oliver and Natalie Smyka.
