Join us Saturday in Salon E for a special viewing of Winter Slides from 2:00-4:00pm. There will be a director Q&A afterwards! Come down and meet the cast and crew.
“Winter Slides” is an offbeat supernatural dramedy that tells the story of Mary, a 27 year old lonesome woman who inherits her old childhood home after her estranged father dies. But upon arriving at the house she soon discovers that she has inherited it with 2 other half sisters she never knew existed. And then, to make matters worse, her father comes back from the dead. http://winterslides.com/
Also on Saturday in Salon E, there will be a special viewing of Found in Time from 4:00-6:00pm followed by a director Q&A.
Chris is a psychic who lives his life out of order – experiencing past, present and future as a jigsaw puzzle. But when he commits a murder in the future, he has to change his past and present in order to prevent it from happening. http://www.foundintimefilm.com/
And on Sunday in Salon E, Oh, Inverted World will be shown from 12:00-2:00pm, followed by a director Q&A.
“Oh, Inverted World” is a film about your mid-twenties…and the moon falling into the earth. Misanthropic Mina and her best guy friends, The Bearded Three, have just arrived back in their small hometown after graduating college. They quickly realize that the post-college life is unfulfilling, lonely, and quite confusing, as they find themselves with no direction at all. And then, things get even more confusing when a strange woman named Selene comes into their lives and gives them a grave prophecy: the Moon is going to fall into the Earth. Originally released as a thirteen part web series, “Oh, Inverted World” is a black and white, indie, sci fi dramedy called by The New York Times “a mumblecore ‘Night of The Living Dead’” and an amusing “allegory of 20-something angst and aimlessness” and was shot entirely on Long Island, NY. http://www.ohinvertedseries.com/
Cala Di Mare Italian Grill, located in the Best Western Mill River Manor, will be offering a special $12 buffet lunch during both days of LI-CON. Those staying at the hotel will also receive free breakfast there! Check out the dinner menu here.
