The Tribeca Film Festival is on the way and we’ve got an exclusive look at the Dramatic Competition entry, First Winter.

If you live in or near New York City, I hope you’re enjoying these record high temperatures because First Winter takes place during the very coldest of winters. When temperatures dip down to record-breaking lows, an apocalyptic blackout forces a group of Brooklyn hipsters to take shelter in a secluded farmhouse. What else to do while they wait out the issue than indulge in sex, drugs, alcohol and some yoga, too? However, their fun and games come to an abrupt halt when they realize their food supply is running low, causing group members to turn on each other and gravely assess their mortality.

First Winter is the result of a cast and crew comprised of friends and colleagues plowing through a micro-budgeted shoot in just 23 days. Director Benjamin Dickinson and co. bunked down in a remote Hudson Valley farmhouse with limited resources to bring you the most authentic big screen experience possible. Check out a tiny piece of the result below and click here to find all the details on First Winter’s run at the Tribeca Film Festival 2012.
