“My Last Year with the Nuns,” Matt Smith’s autobiographical tale spins a wild and surprising yarn of growing up in 1960s America.

“Family Weekend,” centers on a 16-year-old competition rope skipper who takes matters into her own hands to bring her parents, played by Kristin Chenoweth and Matthew Modine, back to “normal.”

“Kayan Beauties,” tells the story of three Kayan women who travel from their remote village to sell handicrafts in a distant city in Myanmar. They are accompanied by a Kayan girl, who has just had the tribe’s decorative, heavy brass coil rings placed around her neck. In the city, the girl is kidnapped by human traffickers. Far from home and out of their element, the Kayan women desperately search for the girl.

“Curio Shop,” Robert Scott Crane’s award-winning post apocalyptic acid western.

“Listen,” a short film by Bainbridge High School student Brendan Bennett about a boy and his drug-dealing brother and how the power of music shapes their lives.

Also of note are four films screening on Sunday on the topic of the Japanese American Exclusion during World War II:

Lois Shelton’s “After Silence: Civil Rights and the Japanese American Experience,” Brenda Berry’s “Only What They Could Carry,” Lucy Ostrander and Don Sellers’ “Fumiko Hayashida: The Woman Behind the Symbol” and Cory Shiozaki’s “The Manzanar Fishing Club.”
