• Fuchs & Pinguin (2021)

    Dave Lojek & Catharina Hamerle

    Germany // 13 min.

    Dive into the privacy of German couples and experience animal pleasure. Logline: What do German couples talk about in private? How do disputes heat up and how do they reconcile? The filmmakers hold a mirror up to us with a smile based on fictionalized scenes with animal representatives, which were assembled over real life interview snippets. Synopsis: How do German couples communicate in private? What are they arguing about? Is the way to a man’s heart really through his stomach? This docu-fictional hybrid production discusses such questions with the help of authentic interview snippets that were edited under the staged plot. We get an insight into the life of an animal couple, who experience typical everyday situations on behalf of us humans. At first, our fox is emotionally contained, while the penguin lady may get wild as hell. With a wink, the filmmakers hold up a mirror to the audience in the cinema.

  • Omeyma (2019)

    Marijke De Belie

    Belgium // 2 min.

    A film about friendship and a wondrous dream. Omeyma is Marijke De Belie’s expression of her fascination for hands and voice. Almost by accident we are witness to a conversation between the maker and her subject. The wondrous story which unfolds along the way, frames this beautiful portrait. The friendship between both women manifests itself in the lively game of hands and voice. The lines of the watercolour pencil on wet paper that Marijke De Belie uses to tell the story, give a poetic air to the film.

    Caneve Nastasja

    Belgium // 4 min.

    With Dad, it was love in profusion, admiration, warm hands. With Dad, it was absence, glassy eyes and my stomach tied. With Dad, it was ups and downs. With Dad, it was like that.

    Ethann Néon

    The walk inhabits our being and governs our social space. Side by side or face to face, it implies an exchange. When combining everyone’s specific pace, a hidden harmony arises. Reconnecting with Eadweard Muybridge‘s work, this film projects us into the frenetic rhythm of the steps of fifty walkers.

    Alexei Dmitriev

    Russia // 4 min.

    The AI (reverse-engineered from the works of Robbie Barrat and Eric Groszman) was designed to generate the lyrics and the music for the film. The visuals were edited by the human. The result: man and machine creating a mathematically perfect ‘90s hip-hop music video.
