BEL 2018 3’
DIRECTED BY: Santiago Pérez Rodríguez
SCREENPLAY BY: Santiago Pérez Rodríguez
PRODUCTION BY: Santiago Pérez Rodríguez
An electrifying story of a dog and energy poles. The minimal form is set to the frequency where the industrial mixes with the body and turns into one. An audio-visual experience imitating the feeling of sticking a fork into a power socket.

SCREENPLAY BY: Élise Simoulin
PRODUCTION BY: Philippe Meis
A kitty with self-control issues. Big cat anger. A giraffe with a red guitar. An educational adventure in a cute world. Modern dance at the fireplace. And even though it looks childish, the message is universal.

DIRECTED BY: Raghad Albarqi
SCREENPLAY BY: Raghad Albarqi
PRODUCTION BY: Raghad Albarqi
An elegant short feature portraying the social norms of Saudi Arabia. The form combines minimalist aesthetics of manuals and infographics with a monochromatic color range. The film certainly makes you think of how a Polish manual would look like.

Out Of Bounds

ISR 2018 8'

SCREENPLAY BY: Ines ChristineGeißer, Kirsten Carina Geißer
PRODUCTION BY: kiin.animation
A house near a stream - a familiar sight, if wild. Memories of the past and future events yet to happen interfere with the present reality. Everything is tense, pulsating, shaking. Anticipation clashes with melancholy, triviality with the undiscovered.

POL 2018 10’
DIRECTED BY: Weronika Szyma
SCREENPLAY BY: Weronika Szyma
PRODUCTION BY: Weronika Szyma

A cat with a suspicious mouth. A crouching dachshund. Nobody’s seeing this. A leisury, amusing picture of a rare phobia. Watching it, you’ll have a smile on your face - after the screening, you’ll perhaps ponder your own fears.
