Only Human (Directed by Rob Francis Muller, UK)
Following a day in the life of Connie (1916) and Moniba (2016), Only Human explores the differences and similarities between World War One and the present day. Both young women face the trauma of their younger sibling running away to hostile climates, whilst trying to maintain normality in their every day family life back in Britain. By connecting WW1 to the 21st century, we hope to provoke people into being more understanding of their fellow man.
The Last One (Andrea Banjanin, UK)
Suddenly, every living thing on the planet disappeared. No warning. No apparent reason. Every human and animal, gone. Except Matthew.
The Last One is an original, intriguing and ambitious science fiction short film, looking into Matthew’s world and understanding how he has coped with his immediate and inexplicable solitude.
Recovery (Daniel Purse, UK)
A few seemingly unrelated individuals go about their morning whilst a tele-communicative search takes place.
Flint (Meena Ayittey, UK)
Flint is a troubled British male who is a member of the PPA or People’s Party Alliance, a far right organization similar in nature to the BNP. Flint is angry and intolerant of most things, but of ‘foreigners’ in particular.
One afternoon, on his way to a PPA meeting, Flint is involved in a serious accident as a result of his speeding. His injuries are severe. Thankfully Flint’s life is saved after undergoing a blood transfusion.
Flint, grateful to be alive, requests to meet his blood donor in person.
Illuminate (Gustav Högmo & Amanda Gustafsson, USA)
Emma and James haven’t seen each other in a long time.
Salt (Jacob Taylor-Kipping & Tom Stoker, UK)

Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil, See No Evil (SIJIA HUANG, USA)
The choreography conveys the struggling of humanity
A Hand With a Mind of it’s Own (Dave Waldman, UK)
