THE BOY NEXT DOOR
Co-director and Kansas City native John McCrite will be in attendance to introduce his latest co-creation. When a sexually frustrated man agrees to help his husband steal their neighbor's prized art piece in exchange for sex, he finds himself in a compromising position when they discover the neighbor's attractive son has come home from college.
A young gay couple decides to spice up their relationship and find themselves in peril when fantasy and reality start to blur.
SAUNA THE DEAD: A Fairy Tale
A fable in the vein of A Christmas Carol, set in a gay sauna, with zombies. A jaded narcissist stalks the bathhouse halls looking for his next hookup. When he finds himself in the midst of a zombie outbreak, his survival may depend on the one thing he didn't come there for: a human connection. SAUNA THE DEAD: A FAIRY TALE is inspired by mean guys on Grindr and the idea of the sauna as its own little world. Fusing a love of 80s fantasy adventure movies, Disney and zombies, first-time writer/director Tom Frederic presents a genre-hopping modern day fairy tale exploring how the way we treat each other creates the worlds we live in.
LIFE IS A DRAG
Making themselves up for a final show and pondering over life, Alexis and Bettina, two aging drag queens, take us on a journey with more twists and turns than a set of hot rollers - "I haven't witnessed a scene like this since I took a bunch of drag queens to a wig sale!"
