Come to Me, Leopards by Arlitia Jones / Directed by Keira McDonald

The Leopards are a team of women runners who know the joy and pain of pushing themselves past the point of exertion. When their coach goes missing, the remaining members must deal with the pain of her absence and the unresolved anguish that comes from not knowing what happened to her. As they run the same trails she disappeared on, carrying secrets and loss, the runners must decide will they give up or keep going. The Leopards value speed and endurance, but is that enough when one of them goes missing?          (READ MORE ABOUT ARLITIA HERE)

The Pigs in Trench Coats by Anuhea Brown / Directed by Leah Adcock-Starr

It is the year 1999 and two young girls, Junie and Fran, are spending the holidays together at a small academy on the shores of Lake Snohomish. Due to the conspiracy of Y2K, both girls plan to commit a double suicide, just as the world is about to end. When the year 2000 arrives and there is not a global disaster, Junie finds that her world is indeed coming to an end.

Fire Country by Jessica Chisum / Directed by K. Brian Neel

During the largest forest fire in the history of Washington state, a tech giant’s plans to build a new HQ come to a screeching halt. A CEO is missing in the wilderness, and the man who saw him last speaks only in riddles. As the fires loom on the horizon, a young biologist tracks a lone wolf searching for answers. Fire Country is a modern retelling of the founding of Rome.

Two Minutes After Dawn by Vinecia Coleman / Directed by Kristina S. Rowell

After taking in her mother Leann a year and a half ago, the problems that her mother’s dementia have caused are finally catching up to Sam. She’s broke, and her thieving brother has shown up, asking for money. Sam is at the end of her rope, and the best part is, the root of all her problems doesn’t remember a single thing. But maybe the dawn can make things right.
