Animus per Machina

What if everyone would look the same but still a distinction is being made? The protagonists, black balls, are transported into a factory. They make their way through the selection process, that seems completely random. What will happen to them in the end?
Directed by Danja Politis (Netherlands)

Adore The World

A video art film about historic events in China. The artist’s own shots have been mixed with images from the publicly accessible Internet; the resulting images have been processed and superimposed creating complex sequences, poetically expressing the (unconscious) moods and meanings hidden beneath the immediately visible in China.
Directed by Wijnand Geraerts (Netherlands)

Mashed Potatoes

A surreal story of about indifference, negligence and apathy. Critic about materialism. How items that people think are worth something, are worth nothing. The most important thing proves to be the sentimental connection with your own past and memories.
Directed by Juha LIlja (Sweden)

The colors of “Le Bonheur (Happiness)”

The choices of color in shot compositions have a significant impact on the narrative and the emotions the director tries to create. In “Happiness”, every shot is carefully composed, where all the colors match and create a beautiful composition that could easily be a painting.
