Ana Žerjal (ALUO Ljubljana)
Slovenija/Slovenia, 2012, HD, 2'05''

It is a nonsense story that flows from one scene into another, like dreams.

Martina Heyduk (University of Applied Arts Vienna/Martina Heyduk)
Avstrija/Austria, 2011, digiBeta, 7'30''

Flowing, strong colours on a damaged film strip pass by at breakneck speed, with a hollow sound that suggests fireworks and rough weather. Made directly onto the film.

Chintis Lundgren (Chintis Lundgreni Animatsioonistuudio)
Estonija/Estonia, 2011, BetaSP, 11'25''

Montego has killed his best friend... several times already. But still he keeps reappearing on streetcorners and dark alleys.

Avstrija/Austria, 2012, HD, 8'40''

Cars flash across the road, passing oil pumps and wind turbines, periphery and suburbs move by in accelerated speed. Through streets, along facades right into the maze of the city. The view to the horizon changes continuously in a sublime accumulation of things that are seemingly supplied in abundance.

Sebastian Cosor (Mediapro Magic)
Romunija/Romania, 2011, HD, 3'22''

"I was walking along a path with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature." Edvard Munch, 1893

Krabum / Craboom
Francesco Arcuri (Francesco Arcuri)
Italija/Italy, 2012, HD, 12'25''

Craboom is the onomatopoeic sound of a strong explosion. An animation that reminds of Chagall's dreamy and uneasy world, where daily life elements turn into imagery symbols. In a paper world populated by two-dimensional characters, the interference of a vision breaks the “immovable walk” of a clock, decomposing the harmony of a normal family life into small lonelinesses.Zidak / Cigla / The Brick
