Date: May 20th - Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE 14
Time: 5:00pm

Prime-time star Tristin Mays plays the role of Charlotte, a woman battling her own inner demons as she pursues a questionable relationship against the wishes of her mother. Mays has surely been a consistent “heavy-hitter” in the realm of tv and film, but for this cinematic drama, she digs deep to get the tears flowing. Directed by first-timer Devon Stewart, this film explores the dynamics of both women empowerment and, to a degree, the depth of empathy.

Date: May 19th - Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE 14
Time: 8:30pm

We all have secrets...

Even if we get away with the truth... it still exists... haunting us. In a world in which deception, duplicity and immorality abound... Where people think they can get away with anything... This whisks us to a place where actions have consequences.

In this psychological horror short film, designed to be a stand alone with a tag indicating how it can be an ongoing series, we are thrust inside the mind of a young woman forced to face her own truth, while staying at an Airbnb with her friend.

Everyone is hiding something... Redemption is a choice... Except in this house.

Director: Tammy Klembith
