Air Sex Championships: Making Love Out of Nothing At All

“Air Sex: Making Love Out of Nothing At All” is a documentary about
one of the weirdest live touring shows that’s ever existed — the Air Sex
World Championships. Air Sex is like Air Guitar, except competitors
pretend to make love onstage with a partner who isn’t there. Also, Air
Sex isn’t boring (Air Guitar totally sucks). The film will follow
comedian Chris Trew as he brings the 2013 tour across America,
culminating in the 2013 Finals in New Orleans (the first time the finals
have been held outside of

“Sharbat”

Imagine Roald Dahl’s “Matilda” complete with the themes of education
and the importance of family, but set in India and as a drama.

The
story begins with the now older titular character Sharbat, getting
stranded in a railway station where she had once escaped from and she
flashes back to the years leading up to her inevitable departure. We
follow Sharbat, an inquisitive and ambitious little girl, in a family
where the women are not allowed to be literate. She enlists her mother’s
help to learn to read clandestinely, but when she is discovered, has no
choice but to escape.

“Know How”

KNOW HOW is not a documentary nor is it fiction. It’s a new hybrid
approach for using film to create social change. Instead of professional
screenwriters and actors, these stories are written and performed by a
cast of ordinary foster care youth, and their performances are powerful,
moving, and eye-opening. KNOW HOW is a musical that brings authentic
voices and unseen stories to the screen. It’s a bit of a cross between
The Wire and Glee, but not really. And it really aims at driving social
change.

“Bug People”

Bug People is a heartfelt, intimate drama that explores themes of
loss and family in a rural lakeside community off the Appalachian Trail.
It follows a family as they try to grapple with the death of their
father and husband (a bug exterminator), while having to quickly adapt
in order to stay afloat. Each character in this multifaceted narrative
faces unique challenges: June, the mother, is unemployable, her teenage
daughter Dani must work at a wallpaper factory to make ends meet, and
Remy, their youngest child attempts to fill the roll of “man of the
house”.
