Presents Revolvo

By Francy Fabritz

Two women in a car: It seems like they are driving somewhere casually – may be home or to a café? But more and more we are getting the feeling that they are on a mission.

Presents Story

By Jola Bańkowska

Animation – Poland – 2019 – 5’ – Without dialogue

“Story” is a reflection about modern man in the age of omnipresent technology. Looking through stories - a popular function in many social media platforms - we see people who are lonely, lost or already indifferent about the reality surrounding them. Action takes place during one day and it's told by short, often (auto) ironic scenes, where the virtual world sinks to reality.

Drama - Greece – 2019 – 6’ – English

A teacher is set to do his daily routine classroom at the school he works, during one of the most difficult days to teach.


Presents A Cat Called Jam

By Lorraine Lordan

Comedy, Animation – Ireland – 2020 – 8’ – English

“A Cat called Jam” longs for the world to see him as he sees himself but it’s hard when his

outside doesn’t match his inside. When he meets a group of mismatched dogs, he wants nothing more than to join their merry band. Can Jam help them see the dog inside and stay true to himself?



Present Joseba Cruz

By Aleix Vilardebó

Documentary – Spain – 2020 – 7’29 –English subtitles

Joseba Cruz is a free soul. Through a road trip to the land of his childhood, Joseba unveils how and why he threw off the shackles of 3 stars restaurants to reinvent the concept of haute cuisine.


EMBASSY OF PORTUGAL, Camões Instituto da Cooperação e da Língua Portugal, AGÊNCIA DA CURTA METRAGEM

Presents 3X3

By Nuno Rocha

Comedy - Portugal – 2009 – 6’ – Without dialogue

A night watchman spends the time in a basketball court throwing a ball into the basket. He has become an expert. His ego rises when he shows his abilities to a simple cleaning employee. In his office, the guard watches on the surveillance cameras the cleaning guy taking a break and trying to put the ball in the basket.



Presents Correre

By Nicholas Bertini 

Animation – Italy – 2020 – 3’59” – English subtitles

It takes a steady hand to perform a well-done run. “Correre” (to run) is not only an action but it’s also a word. Handwriting, letters, italics or capital letters are characteristic elements of the style of a run. No one is forced to have a good handwriting, but perhaps it’s the only way not to stumble on our own words.




Presents Apfelmus

By Alexander Gratzer

Animation – Austria – 2019 – 6’51” – English subtitles

While two birds talk about their existence, a small apple makes its way into the depths of a cave under watchful eyes.
