Virtual Film Screenings
SXSW Film Festival Short films– available now
We are proud to support the efforts of Oscilloscope Laboratories & Mailchimp in their partnership to launch the #SupportTheShorts platform, a free website now streaming the Official SXSW 2020 Short Films.
While nobody can replace the festival (or, of course, the theatrical experience!), we are glad to see these shorts made available to the world now. Join us in watching and celebrating the achievements of these filmmakers!
Saint Frances– Available Now!
Flailing 34-year-old Bridget (Kelly O’Sullivan) finally catches a break when she meets a nice guy and lands a much-needed job nannying six-year-old Frances (played by a scene-stealing Ramona Edith-Williams). But an unwanted pregnancy introduces an unexpected complication. To make matters worse, she clashes with the obstinate Frances and struggles to navigate a growing tension between Frances’ moms. Amidst her tempestuous personal relationships, a reluctant friendship with Frances emerges, and Bridget contends with the inevitable joys and difficulties of becoming a part of someone else’s family. 106 minutes. Drama / Comedy. NR.

Bacurau- Available Soon!
A few years from now… Bacurau, a small village in the Brazilian sertão, mourns the loss of its matriarch, Carmelita, who lived to be 94. Days later, its inhabitants (among them Sônia Braga) notice that their village has literally vanished from most maps and a UFO-shaped drone starts flying overhead. There are forces that want to expel them from their homes, and soon, in a genre-bending twist, a band of armed mercenaries led by Udo Kier arrive in town picking off the inhabitants one by one. A fierce confrontation takes place when the townspeople turn the tables on the villainous outsiders, banding together by any means necessary to protect and maintain their remote community. English and Portuguese with English subtitles. 131 minutes. Action / Drama. NR.
