Richard Kerr, De Mouvement, Canada, 2009, 7 min
Kerr’s mind-bending trip through the wipes and dissolves of old feature films is an exhilarating demonstration of the power of cinema.

Ben Rivers & Paul Harnden, May Tomorrow Shine The Brightest Of All Your Many Days As It Will Be Your Last, UK, 2009, 13 min
Female Japanese cadets patrol the woods and countryside where old men channel Futurist poets. Adjacent yes, but simultaneous?

Neil Beloufa, Brune Renault, France, 2009, 17 min
An abandoned car park is no substitute for the open road. Four characters find themselves in a looped fiction, replete with clichés, acting out cycles of heightened emotions. Like all teenagers, they think the world revolves around them – and in this film it almost does.

Victor Alimpiev, Vot, Russia, 2010, 5 min
As if suspended in limbo, or perhaps deep in rehearsal, five performers exchange glances, gestures and utter strange sounds.

Janie Geiser, Kindless Villain, USA, 2010, 4 min
Two boys seem trapped inside their own imaginations, dreaming of naval battles and Egyptian exotica.

Peter Tscherkassky, Coming Attractions, Austria, 2010, 24 min
With humour and materialist dynamics, Tscherkassky explores the direct relationship between actor, camera and audience. A meditation on the ‘cinema of attractions’; exploiting leftovers from the commercial industry to collide the intersecting forms of early film and the avant-garde.
