But as he tries to move, he notices something: He's missing a leg.

Only Lovers Leave To Die | Vladimir Kanic, Director | 7 min. | Croatia, Canada, 2016.

Poles Apart tells the story of an unlikely meeting between Nanuk, a tough female polar bear, and Aklak, an enthusiastic male grizzly bear, brought together by their changing habitats.

A Narrative Film | Michael Edwards, Director | 8 min. | USA, 2016. 
The most narrative narrative never narrated. It has a beginning, a middle, and an end…. It is at once both a three-act assault on the conceit of the traditional narrative, as well as a futile attempt to escape the narrative impulse of cinema.

The Full Story | Daisy Jacobs, Director | 8 min. | United Kingdom, 2017.
Toby is selling his childhood home. Walking through empty rooms, he is assailed by memories of happiness unravelling, break-down, and the helplessness and rage of being child. Why do close ties break and loved ones leave? Can we ever know the full story? And what do you do when your family's gone?

Child Dream | Christophe Gérard, Director | 11 min. | France, 2016. 
Floating barges, water that suddenly takes human form and rainfall that leaves puddles deep enough to drown in...  Is this merely a child's dream? 

Fox and the Whale | Robin Joseph | 12 min. | Canda, 2016. 
The tale of a curious fox who goes in search of an elusive whale.  A journey of pursuit, longing and discovery.
