Directed By: Rainer Sarnet

Rock Steady Row

Directed By: Trevor Stevens
Narrative Feature

When a lone freshman arrives at Rock Steady University he discovers that the campus is controlled by two warring factions: Kappa Brutus Omega and The High Society. His bike is stolen and shuffled into the fraternities’ most valuable source of income, the bicycle market. Turning the University into more of a war zone than a place of education, the freshman plays the rival fraternities against one another to reclaim his stolen bicycle.

Walden: Life in the Woods

Directed By: Alex Harvey
Narrative Feature

A radical, western re-imagining of Henry David Thoreau’s classic “Walden.” Taking place over twenty-four hours, the film interlaces Solitude, Friendship and Society: three contemporary narratives about the trappings of modern life and the unlikely transcendentalists who dream dangerously of escape.

Emma Arnold: Yes, Please

Directed By: Cody Gittings
Comedy Special

The premiere of Emma Arnold’s new comedy special. Equal parts outrageous and thoughtful, her standup comedy is engaging, honest, and comes from the heart. In addition to being a successful touring comedian, Emma is a third generation beekeeper and honey farmer. When not touring, Emma lives in Idaho, where she keeps kids and bees with varying degrees of success (and directs Comedyfort)

IHC 1NFINITY: The First Record Label with a Shared Music Video Universe

Full of absurd characters and musical moments, Alex’s journey leads her down a dark path told through the lens of pop culture.

The IHC 1NFINITY Universe is heavily inspired by sci-fi horror epics and teen comedies of the 70s, 80s, and 90s.
