Press notes for Fire Work state: "Ana and her father Caleb run a small fireworks shop in a nowhere town in an unforgiving corner of the world. One day, Ben walks in...and the fireworks really begin. Fire Work is a love story about a strong woman, strong chemistry, a harsh landscape, and harsher choices you make not just to survive, but to thrive."

Goldberg (July 11-12); Gregory Moss' House of Gold, directed by Sarah Benson (July 16-17); Josh Tobiessen's Spoon Lake Blues, directed by Kyle Donnelly (July 18-19); Emily Schwend's Carthage, directed by Davis McCallum (July 23-24); and Abbie Spallen's Bogwog, directed by David Esbjornson (July 25-26).
