Things Left Unsaid (Uk, Dir: Theo Douchand)

Harriet Rees stars as Imogen, a young girl getting ready to leave her small town to start university in Durham. Scared of leaving behind family and friends, she oscillates between excitement and fear. There is unfinished business with her father (Adrian Annis), unspoken affection for her best friend Tom (Josh Lewis) , and tension when it comes to her mother, whom she hasn’t seen in years. During her last days in the rural paradise she grew up in, Imogen must face the things left unsaid.

Some Ways to Get Rid of a Body (Finland, Dir: Hannes Renvall, Ria Backstrom)

In the afterglow of his own bachelor party, a young man spots a woman laying face down in a desolate alley.
