HFF Night at the JCC: Round 2!

In April of this year, we held our very first HFF Night at the JCC with our friends at the Arthur M. Glick JCC. We’re partnering up again for another HFF Night at the JCC during their annual Festival of Books and Arts. Once again, we’ll show three shorts straight from the 2011 Heartland Film Festival (listed below) AND one of the filmmakers will be present and we’ll Skype in the filmmakers following each film for a brief Q&A. Remember that as you watch the film and get those questions ready!

Audience Choice Award – Narrative Feature

Red Dog

It’s night in the Western Australian outback, a dying dog lies in the backroom of the town’s only pub. Slowly, as word spreads, the local community gathers at the pub. Part vigil, part wake, part celebration, they swap stories of Red Dog’s epic life, travels and his rise to fame.

Audience Choice Award – Documentary Feature

Crime After Crime



Crime After Crime
tells the dramatic story of the legal battle to free Debbie Peagler, an incarcerated survivor of domestic violence. Over 26 years in prison could not crush the spirit of this determined African-American woman, despite the wrongs she suffered, first at the hands of a duplicitous boyfriend who beat her and forced her into prostitution, and later by prosecutors who used the threat of the death penalty to corner her into a life behind bars for her connection to the murder of her abuser.

Audience Choice Award – Short
