Work from local, national filmmakers, from Sundance and UNLV film students will be shown in this 12th Annual FF that is sponsored by Zappo, under the direction of Executive Director Milo Kostelecky. 

The festival opened with the feature film “Untitled the Amazing Jonathan”, a documentary of the Amazing Jonathan who was diagnosed with a heart disease and given one year to live. Three years later he was on tour filming his last hurray of magic and comedy. Director Ben Berman was trying to separate the truth from illusion, shock and deception as he filmed his epic comeback tour.

In an interview with his wife Anastasia Synn after the Q&A, I asked what has kept him alive and she said it was all the loving good care she has given him. This is a must see film and after being shown at Sundance, Hulu has picked up the rights for $2 million worldwide distribution.
