The Treatment
Directed by Geoffrey Guerrero, Brooklyn, NY, 6:03, Brooklyn Premiere!
A livery cab driver wants to go home after working a double shift. Bob Collins has an important meeting he can't miss and needs an urgent lift. Just as he's about to call it a night, Julio gets one last call from the dispatcher. The pick up is Bob. The cab ride will change their lives forever

Man with a Gun
Directed by Marco Silva, Union, NJ, 12:45, Brooklyn Premiere!
We follow The Man as he navigates through the slums of the city. Dodging cops and dealing with men of low character. He has just committed a horrible crime. Something he can't even believe he did. He struggles with his conscious as he plunges into the city's worst. He encounters armed robbers and drug abusers. He is a fugitive among the downtrodden. 24 hours ago he had a family, a wife, and a job. Now, The Man only has his gun.

In for Business
Directed by Daniel Florio, Astoria, NY, 19:00, World Premiere!
A story about a mild mannered Mid-West guy who comes to NYC on business. In celebration of closing a big deal, he strays from his comfort zone: he purchases some cocaine from a shady drug-dealer and calls up a prostitute he found online. This is the mere tip of the iceberg for 'Our Man' as he soon delves into a series of bad decisions that will push his will, and sanity to the brink.

Directed by Cory C Maffucci, Josh Haslup, Brooklyn, NY 8:00, New York Premiere!
