CRUZIN' is a feature-length documentary that chronicles a 12-day, 1000-mile bike ride from north through south Vietnam with U.S. Olympian Tony Cruz and 13 of his friends and fellow bike enthusiasts. An entirely experiential film, the cameras focus primarily on the athletes, making the audience feel as if they are on the same journey, part of the camaraderie among the friends as they deal with the challenges of foreign terrain and confront their own personal limits.

Video gaming is a robust multi-billion dollar industry, with a subculture looking to turn gaming into a legitimate sport, where money can be made through competitions, endorsements, and sponsorships. And one of the largest communities within this subculture is the Fighting Game community. With KING OF CHINATOWN, filmmaker Calvin Theobald follows Justin Wong, a video-game prodigy sharpening his skills as he battles challengers in the savagely competitive world of Street Fighter IV. But as Justin fights his way through the ranks, he finds himself up against a formidable off-screen challenge -- his allegiance to The Empire, a video-gaming collective run by its charismatic and potentially destructive leader, TriForce.

One lucky winner will be CRUZIN' with the KING OF CHINATOWN, courtesy of IndiePix.
