The USA Film Festival will present a series of nonfiction short films, including:

- Nina Gilden Seavey’s Parables of War, where history, dance and drama converge in choreographer Liz Lerman’s powerful dance project featuring veterans and their stories (with Bill Pullman).
- Scott Edwards’ poignant Master Hoa's Requieum, where 70-year-old Vietnamese martial arts master Nguyen Tien Hoa returns to Southeast Asia to search for the graves of his wife and children, who were killed by pirates while fleeing Vietnam.
- Ned MacNeilage’s Showfolk, featuring seven of Hollywood’s golden era veterans residing together in the Motion Picture & Television Fund home who share their life stories, humor and wisdom.
