NO starring Gael Garcia Bernal was a standout at this festival. Replicating a documentary, this film told the story of the vote to oust Pinochet in 1980's Chile "election." An ad executive risked life and family to help others feel comfortable to vote "no."

JOSEPHINE AND THE COCKROACH was a short, beautiful and touching love story melding human characters with CGI perfectly. This film, devoid of dialogue, spoke volumes with expressions and beautiful music.

BEFORE MIDNIGHT is the third in a trilogy of movies thus far. After "Before Sunrise," and "Before Sunset" we meet up with Jesse and Celine who are now in their 40's having been together for many years. This true-to-life conversational film was hysterical in parts and completely relatable in every aspect.
MUSCLE SHOALS promises to be a wonderful documentary about music legends such as Etta James,

There are a few films I'd skip such as AFTERNOON DELIGHT, CRYSTAL FAIRY and IL FUTURO. Although I enjoyed C.O.G., it felt more like a "made for tv movie" than one for the big screen.
Keep checking back for more updates!
