SUNDAY NIGHT AT JANE'S

Written by

Emily Powers

Directed by

Sonny Nightingale

What would happen if you invited all of your exes over for a dinner party and then never showed up? Sunday Night at Jane’s is a comedy that follows five guests and one bisexual ex and the chaos that ensues. Each guest has their own motives for coming to dinner. In flashbacks, we see each relationship play out. All of these memories collide to create an idea of Jane. It’s a self portrait of a woman who doesn’t matter and possibly doesn’t exist but more on that later.

CONVERSION RATE

Written by

Sergei Burbank

Directed by

NJ Agwuna

An aspiring journalist thinks he’s found the motherlode: a retired and possibly crooked New York City cop whose tainted caseload might have put untold numbers of innocent men behind bars. But is the target as frail as he seems? Is his own journalistic record as spotless as he claims? And are the police -- the spear’s tip of society’s criminal justice system -- solely responsible for the consequences of the overwhelming job with which they’ve been tasked? Conversion Rate examines questions of ethics, humanity, and collective responsibility for the three-strikes, prison-industrial complex that now encumbers American society.
