Based in Pensacola, Florida, the festival features the world’s best shorts in the genres of science fiction, horror, fantasy, comic books, pop culture and animation.

Duplicitous Minds is a captivating crime thriller/drama, heist film that explores the mysterious world of magicians and con artists, bringing the audience on an exciting journey of magic, illusion, hypnosis and manipulation. Directed by Robert Rippberger (For Those Who Walk Away, Public Enemy Number One) and produced by Catalina Yue (Out of Time, Driven), the film stars Matthew Palumbo (Matthew, Brooklyn Vans), Catalina Yue (The Great Chameleon, Project Afterlife), Rob LaColla Jr. (Burn, The Cincinnati Spin), Arap Bethke (Ugly Betty, Instructions Not Included, La usurpadora), Jason Fay (The Story of Mary, Queen of Scots, Altered Reality), Chris Wadhams (Last American Outlaw) and Ryan Kendrick (MacGruber, Cypher).

Duplicitous Minds promises to be an unforgettable experience that will leave audiences on the edge of their seats. This unique artistic film is structured like a long form magic trick with a surprising payoff at the end. There are hidden clues, symbols and meanings and the film allows the audience to interpret the film differently based on their choices. Do you choose love (Queen of Hearts) or power (Ace of Spades)? The dichotomy of one’s lust for power and one’s loyalty to love propels the lead into a labyrinth of traversing a heart torn in two.
