Into the Dark
Directed by Benjamin Berger, NY, NY, 13:50

Several weeks after the deadly virus has taken hold and contaminated the natural water, Aaron and his daughter are trapped in their home. Despite Abby's declining health and their rapidly diminishing food and water supply, Aaron believes that with a little hope, they will be saved. Little do they know, out in the wilderness a pair of out-of-luck soldiers face their own struggles, fighting to survive and to carry out their mission.

When Adam's wife goes into a coma after a car accident, he's faced with the most difficult decision of his life...being pressured to pull the plug.

In the near future, a young social worker (Sunita Mani, “Glow”) travels to a small community to administer behavior-modifying "patches" that guarantee happiness for the wearers. She must decide what to do when a precocious girl (Audrey Bennett, “Frozen on Broadway”) refuses to accept the patch.

Captured in the adirondack woods, a man, Avi, is desperate to reach his daughter in Canada but cannot even speak the language of his captors after an event causes New York City to become unlivable.

The Replacement
Directed by Michael Pizzano, NY, NY, 5:29, Brooklyn Premiere!

What begins as a story on bullying evolves into an exploration of what it means to be alive when an exec steps in to defend the front desk from the office jerk. A little bit of comedy, a little bit of drama – definitely Sci-Fi.

Directed by Andrew Damon Henriques, Bellport, NY, 5:41, Brooklyn Premiere!

Sally finds the perfect dress for her but she can't afford it and tries to persuade her best friend, Vicky, to lend her the money. But Vicky is too preoccupied with packing and trying to get out of town to listen. 

Directed by Luis Tinoco Pineda, Barcelona, Spain, 15:00, Brooklyn Premiere!

Debbie is rude with her own family. But after a dramatic car accident, she starts to regret about the way she behaved with them. Unexpectedly, Debbie's story connects with Arsys's, an experienced military and space fighter pilot who tries to survive a huge space battle which takes place on other time...another galaxy....another universe.
