"Sometimes Our Friends Come Over" got into Tampa Bay Underground Film Festival!
So "Sometime Our Friends Come Over(and sometimes we're all alone), was accepted into the Tampa Bay Underground Film Festival(Tbuff)!
It will be screening December 9th in Tampa!
“Sometimes” (as we like to call it around here for REALLY short) has a solid chance to win a title-truncated trophy or two, as it is an intelligently acted and cleverly written multilayered metaphor about modern times as seen through the eyes of a loving couple who slowly begin to realize the future (their future? everyone’s future?) is bleak, leading to them alienating their friends... who stop coming over as much. Watkins’ funny and melancholy Los Angeles import plays Friday 12/7 at 11PM." -TBUFF

Synopsis: (narrative fiction): Sometimes Our Friends Come Over... uses the story of a young couple as an analog for a society coming to terms with the fact that the future will be much worse than the present.
