Oleg: The Oleg Vidov Story
Now through Nov 28
The film will be followed by our Q&A with producer Joan Borsten Vidov

For those who missed the in-person screening and for those who attended and wanted to see the film again (this time with subtitles): Award-winning director Nadia Tass brings us this AA Documentary Feature and DGA Best Documentary Director contender profiling one of the Soviet Union's most celebrated film actors, starting with his spectacular rise to stardom -- only to find that no amount of fame could save him from a system that tried to control his life. Finally forced to defect, he fled to the West -- where a chance meeting led to love, an eventual move to Malibu, and a turbulent three decades in Hollywood where his old nemeses sought to steal his success.

Our next contender in the race for Best Live Action Short is set against the backdrop of the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests, where young Curtis Grimes works his daily hustle in the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles. The casual observer of his actions may jump to snap judgments, but as he will tell you: "be careful of what you see, cause truly seeing is not as easy as perceiving, when biases spread like viruses, and not of your own conceiving."

Next up in the race for Best International Film comes from The Netherlands, the story of a young family that is hit by a tragedy they have to deal with it in their own unique (and and completely unexpected) way. This film ends up being far more than this simple storyline suggests, so we strongly recommend it!
