Special Panel to Follow Screening: “Festival Strategy for Non-Fiction Storytellers"
By day, Eric Swain and Troy Bernier are just a couple of mild-mannered, nerdy Florida scientists, but after hours their real passion comes alive in the form of the fantastical and sometimes inadvertently hilarious science fiction films the two lovingly craft with only the help of an enthusiastic amateur cast, a basement green-screen, and some inspired lo-fi effects. While Eric views their efforts as a fun hobby, Troy believes the films could lead to the big time, and so with very different agendas the two undertake their most ambitious project yet, an epic short known simply as Planet X.
Myles Kane and Josh Koury's affectionate and funny documentary follows this dynamic duo as they pull out all the stops to realize their unique vision on the big screen. And whether the end result is unintentionally funny or a testament to the boundless potential of DIY achievement, Eric and Troy embody the true filmmakers' spirit, and Journey to Planet X stands as a paean to the democratization of creativity and a celebration of artistic expression in all its forms.

A short documentary film on former New York Giant CHAD JONES—a star athlete from LSU whose promising professional career was put on hold by a tragic car accident before it even had a chance to begin.
The film details Chad's incredible rehabilitation and recovery from the horrific accident that nearly cost him his life. Comprised of intimate interviews with Chad and his trainers, as well as never-before-seen footage of his long road to recovery, the film provides an unflinching view of an elite athlete facing unimaginable tragedy and refusing to submit.
