Lockdown Dreamscape
Germany 2021, color, 6 min, OV, Engl. sub
Director: Nicolas Gebbe
Production: Nicolas Gebbe
When spending a lot of time at home in isolation, the walls begin to move. Spaces, conversations, visual impressions and sounds merge and make everything seem like a long dream. A 3D animated short film that distorts and captures the walls with the technique of photogrammetry.

Lenin’s Dream
Netherlands 2021, color, 9 min, OV, Engl. sub
Director: Boris Everts
Production: Boris Everts
A surrealistic video collage about the nightmares of Lenin and the socialist paradise collapsing. It presents a vivid and surprising imagery that activates the spectator’s mind to make their own logical story. The juxtaposition of clashing realities, such as striding flamingos and military parades, creates an atmosphere that is both ominous and lyrical.

Exterior Day
Italy 2021, both, 8 min, OV, Engl. sub
Director: Giulia Magno
Production: Fulvio Paganin
Inspired by a famous exchange of letters between Michelangelo Antonini and Mark Rothko, the film explores the boundaries between subject and landscape, fiction and reality. Images shot in Italy and the Jordanian desert poetically merge with excerpts from Antonioni’s films, weaving together past and present.

Austria 2022, both, 5 min, OV, Engl. sub
Director: Stefanie Sixt
Production: Daniela Walten
The historic hotel ensemble at Straubingerplatz in Bad Gastein and the dramatic nearby waterfall inspired this audiovisual installation. The macroscopic journey into the past elevates the strata of time and turns them into an aesthetic element.

France 2021, color, 7 min, OV, Engl. sub
Director: Sylvain Bes
Production: Sylvain Bes
A man is seated on the seafloor, bound. An encounter with a woman seems to inspire hope, yet the shackles of the past are strong.

Norway 2021, color, 6 min, OV, Engl. sub
Director: Jan Otto Ertesvåg
Production: Jan Otto Ertesvåg
At first glance, beach snails and humans are nothing alike, but if we look more closely, we might find we share more than meets the eye.

China 2022, color, 4 min, OV, Engl. sub
Director: Shiyu Tang

In such an impetuous and fast-paced society, what will we become when we pick up the mobile phone, take it as our ears, nose, mouth and eyes, and accept the over packaged information?

Taiwan 2022, color, 5 min, OV, Engl. sub
Director: Yu-ping Chang

Unchanged daily routine work and dull assembly line form an endless cycle day in day out. Throughout an accidental journey, social order begins to collapse.
