Gloomy Green (Iran, Dir: Forouzan Jalali)

An abused young girl looking for solace on the streets of Tehran


Inverse (Greece, Dir: Ioanna Tsinividi)

Agastrophos, an ancient Greek statue trapped on a tiny island, is focused on the upside-down beetle; its legs and arms grasping the air trying to flip over. If he could simply give it a helping flick; it would INVERSE its destiny giving it another chance at life.


Foxes (USA, Dir: Tristan Taylor)

Stripped down exploration of masculinity and mental health.


Resolve (USA, Dir: Austin Dragovich)

A woman relives the death of her mother when she sees an opportunity for revenge.


Sui Generis (USA, Dir: Erin Pollock)

Animated clay sculptures battle their egos and struggle to communicate. They may suffer physical and emotional imperfections but, like humans, they’re constant state of transformation. Destroying and rebuilding, again and again, this mud grows into ever new iterations. The process can be cruel and absurd but empathy always creeps in to allow for tender moments of connection.


My Ghoul (Australia, Dir: Andrew Robb, Jessica Gerger)

Fed up with standing around in corners waiting to scare people, a lonely ghoul decides to leave her desolate damp mansion and go searching suburbia for a man.


Gift for a Gloomy Day (Iran, Dir: Behzad Khodaveisi)

Kill yourself and get rid of this life


The Old Man and the Dead (Iran, Dir: Amirreza Falaki)

An old man who lives in a cafe far away from town is committing suicide but a truck driver interrupts him.
The driver has found a dead body and asks the old man to keep the body till dawn so the hearse will come and collect it.
But hours later the old man realizes that the body is alive…
