How many licks does it take until you get to the center of NFFTY? If you're here, you've arrived! Approximately 126 films, 4 workshops, and 3 parties into the festival, we've reached the centerpiece. Like a fine piece of china, everything revolves around this. And these stories will tug at your tenderness, rip apart your faith in humanity, and then sew it back up again with nice little bow on top. You just may never look at camping the same way again.

"Wish You Were Gay," shows Claud attending a party thrown by their crush, similar to a scene from '500 Days of Summer'. On the expectations side of the screen, the artist successfully flirts with, holds hands and dances with the hostess. But on the reality side, Claud remains isolated, trying to get her attention the whole time.
Miriam Guttmann - 24
"Seeds of Deceit" tells the story of fertility doctor Jan Karbaat, who secretly used his own seed instead of of donors'. An intimate film about two mothers and their children, who must face this new reality and try again to live with each other.
