  • Kolmnurga Afaar (The Triangle Affair)

    There is no triangle without corners. There is no direction without a triangle. There is no movement without a direction.

  • Lady And The Tooth

    Hidden away in a village where the most precious commodity is teeth, a toothless man lives in fear of being sacrificed by the villagers. Lonely and in search of acceptance, he resorts to kidnapping as a desperate way to find love and freedom.

  • Reset

    Sophie lives alone with her mother on a desolate farm in the middle of nowhere. A place that hides a secret far worse than she could have imagined.

  • The Video Dating Tape of Desmondo Ray

    His name is Desmondo Ray and this is his video dating tape.

  • The Master’s Voice: Caveirao

    Every night at 3:33 all clocks stop and time is frozen for a moment. During what is a fraction of second to mortal eyes there is a second night, a magical one where the spirits of the cit come out to play. That is the story of the eternal battle for the soul of Sao Paulo, the clash between bohemia and authoritarianism, between comedy and horror.

    The Master’s Voice: Caveirao will also be considered for the Flickerfest Award for Best International Short Film (Academy® Accredited) selected by our prestigious International Jury.

  • Whaled Women

    A group of whale women become washed ashore a fictional island. Alien outsiders, two women of the Office of Development, SS and KK, must work out what to do with them and help them to integrate into society. The film satirises issues of bureaucracy, women, feminism, immigration and prejudice.

  • The Zoo

    Set in the 60s at a lavishly surreal dinner party, this absurdist comedy explores humans and our instinctual behaviours. The film seeks to challenge whether as humans, we’re as advanced as we’d like to think we are.

  • Like Rabbits (Sticky Ends Chapter 2)

    The fish-headed man pursues his gloomy ride in a funfair, randomly distributing his bubbles of doom.

  • Linear

    The line is a dot that went for a walk.

  • Una Furtiva Lagrima

    Requiem for a black bass who laments his pathetic fate, from his sale at the fish market to his final destination: the frying pan.
