Murder... At The CIRCUS!
Co-Directed by Lesley Marshall, Matt Miwa, Ottawa Ontario, Canada, 20:00, USA Premiere!

Murder... At The CIRCUS! hearkens to the era of silent film with an experimental approach. "A unique emphasis on the artistic and the fantastic," (Eddie Spuhghetti - Horror/Retro Host) Murder... evokes early David Lynch in a Guy Maddin universe. A tale of macabre, Murder... employs mysteries and tricks found in the world of stage performance and the characters behind the scenes.

1930. Deep in debt, Stephen Wall enters a pole sitting contest against champion Jim Sherry, but as the days stretch on he becomes increasingly more paranoid that his wife Allison is having an affair with a stranger in the crowd.

Blue Reverie
Directed by Siting Yang, NY, 20:00

Striving to create an online persona with the hope of approaching wealthy men to fund her project, a young woman struggles with the thought of sacrificing dignity for the sake of her artistic vision. As the persona takes on a life of its own, the two inner selves recognize each other for the first time.
