Films in the showcase:

Little Con Lili
Perpetually scheming 10-year-old Lili would much rather eat junk food and jam out to Air Supply than do her homework. But when her mom comes home early from work, Lili must think fast to pull off her biggest con yet.

Written and Directed by Gabriela Garcia Medina.
Released on HBO Nov. 1, 2020. When distribution ends on Nov. 1, 2022, it will go to Netflix.

Miranda of Mind
Miranda has 24 hours to decide if she wants to erase the memory of her rape.

Written and Directed by Bianca Ahonor.
Released in 2020.

Xin (the Mandarin word for heart) is the story of a woman haunted by the ghost of her mother after being her caregiver. With the help of her therapist, she tries to gain clarity on the nature of the hauntings. Are they urging her to perform the ultimate act of violence against her own father? Xin is a psychological drama/horror about surrender, grief and healing.

Written by and starring Tina Huang. Directed by Desha Dauchan. Both HB alums.
Released 2017.

Niloofar is a twelve-year-old girl whose dream is to read and write, but she lives in a village where education is only for boys. While assisting her mother, a well-known midwife, Niloofar meets a feminist woman who offers to teach her in secret. Before this promise can blossom into the future Niloofar longs for, however, her father promises her hand in marriage to an older man. Horrified, she does everything she can to postpone her first period, then keep it secret from her family, but eventually, her efforts come to an impasse.

Written and Directed by Sabine El Gemayel.
Released in 2008.

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject! If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Executive Director Cara Mia Harris at caramia@nwfilmforum.org
