  1. the bomb
    Created by:
    Why? This documentary will be projected 360-degress on flow to ceiling screens that surround the audience, with The Acid performing the score live in the middle of the room. This immersive multi-media experience is expected to be one of the most intense experiences at TFF yet.
  2. Equals 
    Directed by: Drake Doremus
    Starring: Nicholas Hoult, Kristen Stewart
    Why? This sci-fi romance is set in a dystopia where emotion is considered a disease.  It’s a mix between Romeo & Juliet and Hunger Games that will pull on your heartstrings in a mystical way.
  3. First Monday In May
    Directed by: Andrew Rossi
    Why? This documentary is all about the Met Gala, one of our favorite days of the year, which was launched in 1948 to assist the preservation of the Met’s Costume Institute. It follows Andrew Bolton, currently the Curator in Charge of the Costume Institute, through last years ‘China: Through the Looking Glass.”  Art, fashion and pop culture in one film? Count us in.
  4. Elvis & Nixon
    Directed by: Liza Johnson
    Starring: Michael Shannon, Kevin Spacey
    Why? Michael Shannon is Elvis and Kevin Spacey is Richard Nixon…what else do you need? Elvis & Nixon is a comedic rendition of this historical meet-up, screening three times over the next week. We’ll be there.
  5. High Rise
    Directed by: Ben Wheatley
    Starring: Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller
    Why? This thriller is based on a novel of the same name and will take you on a ride you’ll never forget. It’s set in a luxury high-rise building where residents are located based on their social class. You’ll be on the edge of your seat as Dr. Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston) shows you how it descends from peace to anarchy and violence.
