Watch as Sean M McCord from Charlottesville Podcasting Network talks with Derrick Borte, director of American Dreamer.

A former computer programmer, Cam (Jim Gaffigan) is now struggling to make ends meet as a personal chauffeur to low-level drug dealer Mazz. Having lost his computer programming job and his family, Cam suffers an emotional breakdown and finds himself in an unrelenting downward spiral of mental health. Desperate to get out of his many financial binds, he kidnaps Mazz’s son in the hopes of collecting a ransom from the dealer. Shot in Norfolk, Virginia, and directed by Virginia native Derrick Borte (London Town, H8RZ), American Dreamer explores how desperation can lead to dangerous decisions.

American Dreamer is an official Selection at this year's Virginia Film Festival. See the film Saturday, Nov 3, 2018 at 5:00 PM at the Violet Crown 5.

Watch as Sean M McCord from Charlottesville Podcasting Network talks with Abel Okugawa and Aaron Farrington from their film Know Your Neighbor.

The film Highlights the essence of nine locals who proudly call Charlottesville their home, Know Your Neighbor offers insight into the lives of refugees who escaped from war. From SIVs (special immigrant visa holders) who fought alongside U.S. forces in conflict, immigrants who chose to begin life anew in America, and an undocumented immigrant whose days are filled with trepidation, these neighbors discuss their lives in a manner that inherently forges connection and curiosity. While celebrating the multifaceted fabric of Charlottesville’s community, the ways in which we are more alike than dissimilar is revealed.

Know Your Neighbor is an official Selection at this year's Virginia Film Festival. See the film Sunday, Nov 4, 2018 at 7:15 PM at the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center.
