The Flip Side (8:21) William Stead; St. Petersburg Premiere (in attendance)

 Trafficked in Paradise (25:21) Olivia Wilson; Florida Premiere (in attendance)
Sex trafficking is right in front of you, but you don't know it. In the eyes of the police, prostitution is a victim-less crime. But that’s about to change. The Sarasota Police Department is re-thinking how they approach prostitution. That starts with seeing prostitutes as sex trafficked victims.

The Edge of Daybreak (10) Alix Lambert ; St. Petersburg Premiere
It doesn’t take a seasoned musician, engineer, or producer to marvel at The Edge of Daybreak and their sole record, Eyes of Love. Though rightly acclaimed for soulful melodies and passionate vocals, said record is ultimately infamous for having been recorded in one take at the Powhatan Correctional Center’s recreational area by a six-inmate group, each member — then serving sentences ranging between six and 60 years — whisked back to their cells as soon as they’d hit the last note on the final track.

It’s Only Rock and Rock (17)  Marcia Jarmel & Ken Schneider; North American Premiere
When the Rolling Stones make their historic first visit to Havana, only one Cuban photographer gets a press pass—revolutionary and rock fan Ivan Soca Pascual.
When Ivan gets the gig documenting the Rollings Stones historic visit to the island, he is elated—and terrified. This new British invasion is a metaphor—but for what? The capitalist invasion? The end of socialism? Does it signal opportunity? Or peril? Through Ivan's nuanced lens, we see Cuba, the week Obama and the Rolling Stones descend.
