Born Like a Bullet (Chile) by Jimmy Fernandez. 'Born Like a Bullet' is a collaboration project which combines poetry, dance and film, all in one, with the objective of creating awareness of our heritage and human rights. Like our black brothers, we have faced social discrimination and constant harassment by certain political figures. We´ve had enough. This must stop now and this is our way of protest. We want to let the world know that we our proud of being latinos.”

023_GRETA_S (Germany) by Annika Birgel. A young actress' audition quickly spirals out of control, turning into an intimate and manipulative interrogation. As she fights to stand her ground, one pressing question will remain: how far will she go to get the role? '023_GRETA_S' is a disquieting drama about the abuse of power in the film industry.

Sometimes a little Sin is good for the Soul (Canada) by Alex Beriault. Experimental short film that takes place within an architectural, almost painterly world. Interior structures, shapes and colours form the unusual spaces within which three women are suspended. Somehow their actions and mobility remain bound to their surroundings, and time moves slower than the speed of life to underscore the strange conditions of these subjects. All the while, a glowing red “Exit” sign periodically reappears to tease and perturb its cold, taciturn surroundings, but no matter how often the sign reveals itself, it never points towards any clear way out.

14-Days (United States) by Michael Amter. Eight animated shorts originally created for an international online exhibition featured by Artsy, organized by the Instinc art organization of Singapore, exploring issues presented by the Covid19 pandemic.

Your Beautiful Rubber Brain (Netherlands) by Jelmer Wristers. On an old pig farm enclosed by rolling fields, a farmer has taken on the addicted Dennis. Twenty-four hours in an isolated life full of confusion and alienation. This expressionist portrait shows what lies hidden under the everyday lives of a young farmer and Dennis, who is addicted to amphetamine. The farmer feeds his pigs and Dennis surreptitiously feeds the monkey on his back. To avoid being dismissed, he helps where possible. For example, by holding the bleeding piglets when they are being neutered. At night, both men retire into a weird darkness. One plays with a curious installation, the other slips into a futuristic psychosis. Until a new day dawns.
