The ensemble comedy follows four old friends who decide to throw a Las Vegas bachelor party for the only one of them who has remained single. Billy, Paddy, Archie, and Sam have been best friends since childhood. So when Billy, the group's sworn bachelor, finally proposes to his thirty-something (of course) girlfriend, the four head to Las Vegas with a plan to stop acting their age and relive their glory days. However, upon arriving, the four quickly realize that the decades have transformed Sin City and tested their friendship in ways they never imagined. The Rat Pack may have once played the Sands and Cirque du Soleil may now rule the Strip, but it's these four who are taking over Vegas.

Everyone's Going to Die
Everyone's Going to Die, The feature directorial debut of British filmmaker duo Jones tells the story of two lost souls and one last chance.
Melanie's life in a seaside town is going nowhere until she meets Ray, back in town with a shady job to do. A moment's escape becomes a chance to save themselves and each other. Everyone's Going to Die is a modern British story about coming home, getting by and the redemptive power of feeling you're not alone.
Everyone's Going to Die is one of a new breed of British independent films where story is the key driver in the film. Shot on a tiny budget in the summer of 2012, the film stars Rob Knighton, a former carpet fitter in his first ever acting role, and German star Nora Tschirner. The film was shot over one month in a small seaside village, where local townspeople worked as crew, extras and supporting artists. The Film was quickly selected to World Premiere at SXSW in 2013, and then nominated for Best British Film at Edinburgh International Film Festival. Then floowed a tour of Russia with the British Film Council, Dinard in France where the film received a special mention, the prestigious Mar Del Plata in Argentina, nominated for Outstanding British Debut at the British Independent Film Awards and Premier Plans in France. It is now this year's selection for the 2nd Annual Feature Film Project.

Based on the 2009 investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, The Lost Child of Philomena Lee, PHILOMENA focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee, mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock - something her Irish-Catholic community didn't have the highest opinion of - and given away for adoption in the United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn't allow for any sort of inquiry into the son's whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith, a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.
