Lives Well Lived () Genre: Documentary Runtime: 01:12

Winner Nevada City Film Festival - Heart of Gold Award – Excellence in Storytelling. Lives Well Lived celebrates the incredible wit, wisdom and experiences of seniors aged 75 to 100 years old. Through their intimate memories and inspiring personal histories encompassing over 3000 years of experience, forty people share their secrets and insights to living a meaningful life. Here’s director Sky Bergman on her truly uplifting film, “My inspiration for the Lives Well Lived project was my 103 year old Italian grandmother who enjoyed exercise, making the best lasagna you’ve ever tasted, and being with family. I started filming my grandmother cooking about five years ago, when she was 99 years old. I filmed her at the gym because I thought, no one will believe that my grandmother is still working out. I asked her if she could give me a few words of wisdom, and that was the beginning of this adventure. Lives Well Lived celebrates the incredible wit, wisdom and life experiences of seniors who are living life to the fullest. Their stories are about perseverance, the human spirit, and staying positive in the midst of great challenges. Through the film, I hope to inspire people of every age to think about what they can do in their own lives to achieve the longevity of both health and spirit that these people have achieved, and to realize that growing older can be a journey to be celebrated.”

Jane () Genre: Documentary Runtime: 01:30

Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of JANE, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, the film offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall — a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists. "...this is a wondrous and moving account of a remarkable life that puts us right there with Goodall to share directly in her discoveries." - The Hollywood Reporter

Loving Vincent (PG-13) Genre: Animation , Drama Runtime: 01:35

It took co-directors Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman seven years to complete Loving Vincent, an awe-inspiring portrait of the great artist Vincent van Gogh. That’s because each one of the nearly 65,000 frames was painted by hand with oil paints following a style intended to mimic that of van Gogh himself. Using nearly 130 of van Gogh’s paintings, Loving Vincent interweaves the artist’s work into the story of his final days. Most people know that he cut off his own ear, but fewer recall – and no one knows for certain – the precise explanation for his death, caused by complications from a gunshot wound to the stomach. In their film, the co-directors speculate on what brought about these curious events. “A-. One of the most lunatic labors of love to appear on movie screens this year. And in that sense, a fitting, miraculous tribute to its subject.” –Joe McGovern, Entertainment Weekly. “Loving Vincent’s dazzling visual achievements make this Van Gogh biopic well worth seeking out.” –Critics Consensus, Rotten Tomatoes.

His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway.
