Local filmmaker John Schwert made an impressive feature-film debut back in 2005 with Among Brothers, and his follow-up effort, In/Significant Others, has already been causing waves since it premiered on the film-festival circuit last September. Already racking up a handful of awards -- including the Festival Prize at the Boston Film Festival and Best Narrative Feature at our own Charlotte Film Festival -- In/Significant Others is now set to enjoy a theatrical run here in the Queen City. Serving as director, producer, co-writer (with David Mulholland) and co-editor, Schwert has crafted a thematically ambitious drama in which various characters -- including a troubled Iraq war veteran, an ill-tempered comedian, his struggling brother, and a duplicitous documentarian -- find their lives overlapping while police investigate a local murder that ties them all together. Shot locally and filled with memorable performances (One Tree Hill's Burgess Jenkins and Charlotte actors Mark Scarboro and Brian Lafontaine are especially noteworthy), In/Significant Others is an impressive achievement that ably showcases Carolina talent. $7-$10. May 18-20; various times. Regal Park Terrace, 4289 Park Road. 704-523-9771. http://www.4wproductions.com/in-significant-others.
