First time press-kit woes!

I am entering my film into multiple short festivals, but I'm worried about my press-kit. When I look at samples, they have tons of info that wouldn't even apply to me (I did everything except the acting) and I'm not sure what to put -- I'm afraid to omit whole sections and only have a three-page kit. Please advise!

I have good production stills, a punchy synopsis, and FAQ.
I have no reviews and third party endorsements.
This is my first film, so my bio only includes other art and music I've done.
Cast and crew bios are even smaller.

I see conflicting things when comparing sample press kits, I'm lost.

Some samples include tech specs, like:
