FUTURE SHORTS SECTION:

WE HAVE DECIDED NOT TO DIE

Dir: Daniel Askill / Australia /2003

Ten minutes to die for. A breath-taking burnished triptych, it evokes a surreal ritualistic world, whose characters appear to float free of space and time.

NIE SOLO SEIN

Dir: Jan Schomburg / Germany / 2004

One morning Max finds himself in a world in which time runs backwards. Will he find his way through this strange world?

HUONEESTA TOISEEN (FROM ONE ROOM TO ANOTHER)

Dir: Risto-Pekka Blom / Finland / 2003

A visual objection against similarity.

BATTAILLE

Dir: Nicolas Provost / Belgium / 2003

Two samurai are fighting against each other over a woman. Or are they fighting for the cosmos? A refashioning of a samurai fight from Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon.

CITY PARADISE

Dir: Gaelle Denis / UK / 2004

When Tomoko moves to London she finds the city an alienating place, but a supernatural encounter changes everything.

M CRAFT (Music Video for DRAGONFLY)

Dir: Gemma Burditt / UK / 2006

A man leaves his house in North West London to find a rowing boat parked in his street. Curious, he climbs in and rows. Courtesy of BBC Film Network.

I AM NOT VAN GOGH

Dir: David Russo / USA / 2005

A misfit artist proposes a film production to a confused public arts festival panel. A true story, many times over, originally created as a site-specific art installation for Seattle's Bumbershoot festival.

TRANSIDENCY SECTION:
THE ILLUMINOUS ONES

Dir: Jaakko Ruuska / Finland / 2008 / 31 min 31s (13 frames)

Zorro and Boris, those ruthless spirits of love, the Illuminous ones, lead me into the zone where our culture was seen only as disappearing forms of wasteland.

MILAN

Dir: Michaela Kezele & Kathrin Henkel / Serbia&Germany/ 2007/ 24 min

In the midst of the 1999 NATO air-raids in Yugoslavia, two brothers make plans to play hide and seek in the forest.

LOVESICK

Dir: Spela Cadez, Germany/Slovenia 2007 / 8min

A delightful animation that shows that love really can conquer all - even the hazards of modern healthcare.

SONYA SIEHT ROT

Dir: Henry Förster, Germany / 2007 / 19min

This unusual experimental film-project is like an early 90's fairytale, set in a club. With its original concept and grotesque humour it is reminiscent of the early work of directors such as John Waters and Mel Brooks.

Special screening:

A FATE AMENABLE TO CHANGE

Dir: Gillian Holt / Germany/Finland / 2006 / 12min 37sec

In this film parallel realities, space and non space, time and non time, recursivity, loss, and discovery are explored through the experiences of a young woman stranded in time and in space. Her journey is dialogue with the beauty which is found in the unplanned, uncontrolled, and the unforeseen.
