The Sprayer (Dir. Farnoosh Abedi)
“In the land occupied with the sprayers army, no one has the right to grow any kind of plants either in public or private. So many of the people and soldiers do not even know how dose a plant grows or look like, until one day one of the soldiers finds a seed buried deep down in the dust and his curiosity is just the beginning of something extraordinary, something big, something revolutionary“
Dust Devil (Dir. Maya McAllister Demangeat)
“This is a story about a sad and troubled girl who made her world so small and familiar that she now feels trapped and weighed down by all the emotions she’s collected to keep her safe. A wise owl comes to visit and urges her to let go of all the things that aren’t serving her anymore, giving her the courage to sweep them all up and away in a whirlwind.“
Scale (Dir. Joseph Pierce)
“Driving along the motorway, Will loses his sense of scale. As his crippling drug addiction deepens, he struggles to unpick the sequence of events that led to his predicament, before he’s lost forever.“
Triskelion (Dir. Jessica Raes)
“A Celtic fairy tale in stop-motion animation filled with adventure and magic. A story about tribal war and finding peace: An arrow from a rival tribe pierces the chieftain’s heart. With his dying breath, he gives his daughter the quest to end this senseless feud.”
