Sell By is a romantic comedy about a group of friends navigating love, life, and relationships as they reach the mid-point. At the heart of the story is Adam (Scott Evans), a talented painter now stuck ghost painting for successful contemporary artist, Ravella Brewer (Patricia Clarkson). He and Marklin (Augustus Prew) are at the five-year mark of their relationship. They don’t have kids, they’re not married, and are face to face with the existential question “Is that all there is?”


The Opening Night reception will begin at 6pm, prior to the 7pm film screening. No additional ticket purchase necessary. The 2020 Storyteller Award winners will be announced prior to the film.
