Metuljeva marmelada / La Confiture de papillons / Butterfly Jam

Directed by: Shih-Yen Huang
Short synopsis:

A young woman describes her father and his relationship to his many pets that he never managed to take care of. The animals die one after the other, as the family is being torn apart.

Kilometri pešačenja / Un kilomètre à pied / Ten, Twenty, Thirty, Forty, Fifty Miles a Day

Directed by: Mathieu Georis
Short synopsis:

A slug doesn't move any faster than a peeing scout.

Film Found

Directed by: Claudia Munksgaard-Palmqvist
Short synopsis:

Look at a mistake that is not human. Be present in the uncontrollable intervention of the material. Between control and chance, surface and void, a film will (perhaps) be found.

Pa-pa, stanovanjce! / Pá kis Panelom! / Bye Little Block!

Directed by: Éva Darabos
Short synopsis:

The protagonist learns that soon she will have to leave her blockhouse flat for good. After receiving the upsetting news, she is overwhelmed with emotions. Her teardrop of farewell grows into a concrete monolith. When the drop hits the ground, a surreal panorama of the block – she used to call home – unfolds.

Tempelj morskih vetrnic / Świątynia Ukwiału / Anemone Temple

Directed by: Justyna Pazdan
Short synopsis:

Deep-sea organisms living in such a specific environment have developed unusual forms and properties. By observing them, you have the impression that you are watching an otherworldly, fairy-tale world of dreams. The Anemone Temple is a creative interpretation of the underwater world, in which the author invites you to take part in a relaxing session.

Cufufu

Directed by: Bruno Quast
Short synopsis:

Bernie Krause's niche theory is that an animal's voice evolved in a way to occupy its own little, unique acoustic slot within a whole soundscape, a puzzle piece in the whole puzzle, to be distinguishable in the mess. A fisher wonders what sounds fit best in niches created by surrounding sounds.

Soft Animals

Directed by: Renee Zhan
Short synopsis:

Two ex-lovers bump into each other at a train station.

Rdeči čeveljci / Rudé boty / Red Shoes

Directed by: Anna Paděrová
Short synopsis:

A story of desire which turns into obsession, based on European folk tales.

Underwater Love

Directed by: Veronica Martiradonna, Andrea Falzone, Maria Cristina Fiore
Short synopsis:

A girl asks herself many questions, faces some monsters, gets so angry she turns into a wasp, mingles with her King underwater, cries exaggeratedly, turns all red and finally grows as tall as a giant.

Sauna

Directed by: Anna Lena Spring, Lara Perren
Short synopsis:

Ava enters the sauna for the first time. She is overwhelmed by the nudity, her thoughts, and the physical sensations. The other guests go about their routines. With the rising heat Ava starts to relax. Finally, she melts away and dissolves into complete ecstasy.
