Two weeks ago, we announced Lionsgate's sponsorship of the YouTube Screening Room -- our platform for premium film content from around the world -- with a line-up of religious satires in honor of Bill Maher and Larry Charles' "Religulous", which opened in theaters today.

Now it's our great pleasure to bring you a round of films that examine the real lives of real people in conjunction with Oliver Stone's highly anticipated "W.", a biopic of the 43rd President of the United States, in theaters October 17.

In this line-up, you'll see the Academy Award-winning documentary, "Thoth", a chronicle of the life of S.K. Thoth, one of America's greatest street performers; "Heavy Metal Jr.", a hilarious and heartwarming documentary, nominated for a BAFTA, following the Irish heavy metal band, Hatred (and its 13-year-old members!), as they prepare for their first gig ever; "Peter and Ben", a touching documentary about the unbreakable bond between two 'black sheep,' which won the Aspen Shortsfest this year; and "Great White Hunters", winner of a Tropfest Comedy Award, about a group of friends who have made a hobby of hunting the world's greatest hunter.

Also, if you haven't done so already, be sure to submit your video to the "W." trailer mash-up contest, accepting entries through October 17.

Enjoy the films,
