A film by Alexis Lloyd
"New York City, in the heart of summer: a heat wave transforms the city into a tropical zone. Ten characters are drawn, one after the other, into a ring of love and desire, each one caught beyond his or her control in a chain reaction of seduction, impulses and self-discovery. 30 BEATS is freely inspired by Arthur Schnitzler's play La Ronde".

A film by Marina Zenovich
In her follow-up of the Emmy-winning WANTED AND DESIRED, Marina Zenovich explores the recent legal battle to bring Roman Polanski back to the United States after more than 30 years. Called "one of the longest running sagas in California criminal justice history", the drama plays out over two continents and touches the highest levels of government in the U.S. and Europe. As the legal battle drags on, Zenovich examines how the lives of Polanski and Samantha Geimer have been utterly changed by their sexual encounter in 1977. With Polanski once again a free man and the prosecution's case seriously compromised, ODD MAN OUT will try and bring some kind of closure to this hugely controversial case.
A film by STEFANO MORDINI
On this side the still mill works non-stop, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
On that side is the Elba Island, a dreamed-of paradise of happy families.
In between, nor here nor there, are Anna and Francesca on the bank of their secret beach. Grown up little girls, they are living their last summer of innocence before high school. Being beautiful while growing up in the working-class outskirts is hard and the only way to get by is to stick to their friendship that is as exclusive and powerful as love can be. Love is what keeps Alessio, Anna's brother, going. Factory worker to the core, he firmly believes in the labour values. Sure, it pays poorly but it gets you to bed stinking of clean sweat. Alessio could have every girl in town but his thoughts are set on the only one he has lost, his dream, Elena. One day love strikes, powerful and unexpected for all and life starts speeding, until it cracks, bleeds and brakes. Far behind the youth's world live the parents. Resigned and cruel models the kids swear never to resemble to. On each one of them inevitably lies the constant cycle of steel that no matter what, can never stop.
