When the four characters in "i r l (in real life)" arrive in Los Angeles for a convention of their favorite online game they are thinking of more than just swords and dragons: longtime friends online, they've decided to use this convention as an excuse to meet for the first time "in real life." What they find at the convention hall is sometimes more and sometimes less than what they'd hoped, and they all must struggle to come to grips with the differences between their idealized online personas and their more complicated real-life selves. A "Critics Pick" at the 2002 Los Angeles Edge of the World FestivalDirector: Stephen Elcheshen. Cast: Nigel Brooke, Michael Chase, Andrea Loewen, Paul Schulz.
