An Ostrich Told Me the World is Fake and I Think I Believe It

Dirs. Lachlan Pendragon
Australia, 12min


When a young telemarketer is confronted by a mysterious talking ostrich, he learns that the universe is stop-motion animation. He must put aside his dwindling toaster sales and focus on convincing his colleagues of his terrifying discovery. It’s scary business living in a stop motion world, where your face comes off and a giant hand controls your every move.

Ice Merchants

Dirs. João Gonzalez and Bruno Caetano
Portugal/France/UK, 15min


Every day, a man and his son descend from their vertigo-inducing house, on top of a precipice, to travel to the village on the plain below and sell ice.

My Year of Dicks

Dirs. Sara Gunnarsdóttir and Pamela Ribon
USA, 26min


An imaginative fifteen year-old is stubbornly determined to lose her virginity despite the pathetic pickings in the outskirts of Houston in the early 90s. This charming, heart-stomp, retro-romantic-comedy pulls no punches with its female-forward look at sexual awakening.

The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse

Dirs. Charlie Mackesy and Matthew Freud
UK, 33min


Charlie Mackesy’s bestselling book comes to life in this beautifully animated film from NoneMore and Bad Robot Productions. Follow the unlikely bond between four friends as they explore the meaning of kindness, courage, and hope.

The Flying Sailor

Dirs. Amanda Forbis and Wendy Tilby
Canada, 8min


Two ships collide in a harbor, an explosion shatters a city, and a sailor is blasted skyward. With ears ringing, blood pulsing, and guts heaving, he soars high above the mayhem and towards the great unknown. A bold blend of comedy, suspense, and philosophy, The Flying Sailor is an exhilarating contemplation of the wonder and fragility of existence.
