The Levi Effect: The Story of Levi Leipheimer
The Levi Effect is the story of America's premier cyclist, Levi Leipheimer as told by him and those closest to him.

Beyond the race results, beyond the training metrics, the story of Levi Leipheimer is best told by those around him. The people whose lives have been impacted by his successes know his sacrifices, his drive, his ambitions, and can get past the quiet demeanor of an athlete who has risen through the ranks of professional bike racing to become America's premier cyclist.

This film is the story of a man told by those who ride with him, work with him, and live with him: the people who are all part of The Levi Effect.

The event will begin with an introduction from Levi where he will set up the documentary The Levi Effect. Immediately following the debut of this personal account, Levi will return with some of his friends for an in-depth panel discussion about the current state of professional cycling and what the future of the sport looks like. Panelists include actor Patrick Dempsey, filmmaker Frank Matson, and others.

Starring Levi Leipheimer

Cut/Print
John and Paul, ambitious to a fault, will stop at nothing to break into Hollywood. As a result, exploitation for profit has become their business. After nearly destroying Paul's uncle's police precinct by spinning a documentary to make good cops look bad, they've come upon their newest scheme; to bait an active serial killer by offering complete anonymity and a worldwide platform for which the killer's work can be displayed.

They begin receiving tapes of women being murdered and quickly realize they've bitten off more than they can chew. Or at least Paul and Mark, the cameraman, realize. John wants his fifteen minutes. The tension rises among the filmmakers as the question is continually posed, "how far is too far?" When they finally decide the line has been crossed, it's too late. The police won't listen to them and neither will the killer. The tapes continue to pile up as the filmmakers are forced to fight for their lives.

Starring Ele Bardha, Angela Chetcuti, Chelsey Fatula, Ken Foree, Tamara Frapasella
