The H-Town Multicultural Film Festival (HTMFF) celebrates Houston's diversity through the power of cinema. 14 Pews will screen 19 features and short films over the course of three days. HTMFF is curated by two programmers: Bears Fonte, director of programming at the Austin Film Festival, as the guest curator for the shorts program; and Cressandra Thibodeaux, executive director of 14 Pews, who programmed the feature films.

The Shorts Program III, titled "Dirty Laundry," features adults-only stories about sex and sexuality, love and love-making.
