He decides to join the school field trip in order to get some time to think. The trip is in a place where he has been with Alisia in the past. Here, his memories will show him that the woman he is with is not anymore the one he loved, and that he is holding to the past.
He will spend a nostalgic moment with Sonie. But Alisia is going forward with the adoption, unaware of his lie, and he is forced to stop her when she gives him the good news. Alisia tracks him down to demand an explanation and they confront each other, reaching the conclusion that their relationship has arrived to an end. The movie will be rich of textures, washed out like far memories, like painted with watercolours, all focused around Giacomo: since it is a story focused on a char-. A musician since youth, his passion has always been writing.
He worked as editor for fashion videos and director of fashion shows for five years. At the same time, he kept writing music and lyrics, and studied literature independently. After a personal crisis caused by the dissatisfaction of that lifestyle, he quit his job and moved to London to start again from scratch.
He is currently working on Faithless, the thesis project for his 3rd year of studies. Synopsis Set up in a world where kids have large stone-like heads, wear colored clothes and are encouraged to express themselves, Little Stones explores the painful growing-up process of a boy, Oyst. Born in a perfect loving family, Oyst is a very talented painter crazy about colors.
Together with his bestfriend Layla, he is preparing to start his education process. However, school brings considerable changes because in order to become grown-up kids have to physically make their head fit through an oval shaped golden mask, relinquish the idea of standing out and accept to live in a perfectly organized neat monochrome world.
Intention A couple of years ago I fell in love with a Tim Burton short story about a character called Oyster Boy who gets consumed by his parents unhappy with the way their son had turned out. I started thinking about the ways the family, friends and society are shaping and re-modeling us and that that growing up is not just a gaining-knowledge process, but it implies loosing other things as well.
I imagined that an artistically inclined child might feel a greater need to hold on to his childhood, realizing what is at stake with the growing up. He tries to hold on to his childhood thus delaying the growing-up process, but soon realizes that this is also not a solution. Every single thing that Oyst has to give up makes a small piece of his head fall, and the child soon finds himself not only trying to save his passions but also the small loose parts of himself.
When the disappointment of his family, the ridicule of his friends and society become evident, Oyst is faced with a tormenting decision: conforming or becoming an outcast. Production Facts Little Stones will be an animated movie of approx. The exact technique is yet to be decided but as textures and shapes play an important role in the story it is quite likely we will use something in the realm of CGI.
At the moment Maria is a free-lance visual artist and is looking forward to step things up and start creating her own projects. Synopsis The Chicken is a story of a six year old Selma, set in wartime Sarajevo, where she lives in a flat with her parents and her sister. She quickly grows very fond of it and is looking forward to the fun times together. Discovering that her mother Sabina is supposed to kill the chicken and prepare it for their dinner, is both shocking and upsetting for Selma, so she decides to secretly free the chicken and save its life.
Sabina becomes the target of a sniper while looking for the bird and Selma is forced to watch her own mother being shot at and fight for her life. Intention The reason why I want to make The Chicken is to show how during the war one can grow up five years in a single day or just in a few hours. Childish games can become dangerous and deadly, consequences of our even most benign and innocent actions can become extremely cruel.
You wake up as a child and you go to bed as an adult. Since then I have cut numerous fiction and documentary films that have travelled through Cannes, Palm Springs, Edinburgh, Toronto and many other festivals. I directed several commercials including a commissioned viral for Toshiba and a test commercial for Armani. The Chicken is going to be my first professionally produced short film where I will work again with Cecilia Frugiuele and Parkville Pictures as my UK producer.

Synopsis Four red-haired, intensively freckled children live in an awry, colorful house. One day he discovers that this strange house He talks to the children, trying to get to know the story of the house. Children are unwilling to share a secret.
But we see that they treat the house in an unusual way: they talk to it and they ask it for advice. He decides to go on a battle. He calls up the authorities to take care of parentless children. They are taken away. But their relationship with the house is stronger than anyone could expect. No wonder why — it turns out that within the walls lives their huge, huuuuge mother. Intention Some people say that every single story ever told is about love.
The four kids live in a building that consists of their mother and walls around her. Through the whole movie, mother is only a mysterious decoration. Once the kids are in danger though, she awakens and rescues them. The script is intended for a short cartoon movie. I believe that through its creativity and colorfulness it can. Director Biography Szymon was born in in Poland.
He was an ingenious pupil in primary school, a smart boy in high school and a very average student at university. Instead of a regular job Szymon: - is an actor of Kabaret Limo, well known Polish comedy group; - writes songs, short stories and scripts; - spends a lot of time on Facebook. The lush and vibrant summer highlights the emptiness they find within themselves. Trees in orchards bend under the weight of apples. The warm light of the sun extracts the obsolete, outgoing colours of summer.
Every now and then the wind brings to the yard the odour of musk. Neither Peter nor Sophy had any idea that mating season had started. The silence is being disturbed by the roars of agitated bulls. In this scenery two people undergoing a crisis cannot find a common language. Sophy becomes obsessed with her body, which begins to take precedence over rationality. Instinct wins. Intention The world is moving forwards due to the power of our brains.
So we like to think. Michel Foucault does not agree with this - in his opinion we are driven by instincts. According to his definition instincts are innate and are the hereditary capacity of animals - including humans to perform behaviours driven by impulses. In our movie an awakening instinct can destroy everything which a loving couple has created so far.
Fruitless efforts to have a baby have caused stagnation in their relationship. On the other hand - does staying with Peter not condemn her to fail as a biological mother? Is the decision to be in a relationship with a man who cannot give her a child an act against nature? We took the filming style from nature films: recording the slightest movement, textures, meatiness and colour. Our aim is to carefully observe our heroes and their emotions. We reduce dialogue to a minimum, and put the soundscape to the foreground.
Sounds of nature will create a dense soundtrack. Director Biography Monika graduated from the Lodz National Film School in , after completing short films that have been shown at prestigious International Film Festivals. In she was selected for the Berlinale Talent Campus. She has created photographic projects and exhibitions shown in Europe. A story where Chocolate meets Vera Drake. There are more women then men after the war. The competition amongst women to get married is high. Helen is depressed, her tears make all the pastries salty.
She gets fired from the pastry shop. On top of that, she realises she caught a venereal disease. Helen sees she is not alone with her problem: women are scratching secretly in the market, in the street, everywhere! As Helen is baking wedding cake for her best friend, she discovers that cacao butter helps to ease her itching.
She starts experiencing. One morning she finds a thick white cream in her pot. She forms it to cones. Helen spreads her magic cones in a special way. She places them on the top of her cake as if they were candles. A secret women movement starts in the city. I was searching for something in the library when found an issue of the Hungarian Women Magazine from by chance. On the cover there was a women riding a tractor. The main article said: women on tractor should take sunflower oil from the kitchen and put it on their face to protect their skin from sunshine.
This point she has to realise no matter how hard she tries to fit the ideal picture of women, she fails. She has to loose her naivety and needs to grow up and find her own way in a strict society. I turned over and found: those who do not have children have to pay extra taxes. So surreal but true. So it means the ideal women work, and have children at the same time.
They are forced by the state to deal. I got admitted to the Hungarian Film Academy, and made several shorts as a director. My most recent short titled: Edina, was selected to the Sarajevo City of Film program last year so I could make my first international short. Marysia 15 decides to sell her first time with a man.
They agree to meet and go to a hotel where their contract can be settled and consumed. They part ways without resolving their contract. Later in the day as emotions cool down, Jan realizes that he paid for something he did not get. Jan and Marysia meet again. To his surprise Marysia informs him that she needs his cash and convinces him to continue with the contract at her place. Inside her flat Jan overcomes his passiveness, but now Marysia begins to have second thoughts.
For the first time this day they see each other as human beings and talk honestly. Marysia tries to lie herself out of the situation. Jola has doubts but eventually Jan stays for dinner A story inspired by two different real life stories, that found me during the last two years. Although it deals with an uneasy subject it tries to show human beings without judging them.
Only suggesting that perhaps they got a bit lost in the modern World. It also tries not to explain human behaviour as by watching someone from aside or through a glass window we are not able to tell about motivations behind actions. We can only observe them, their actions and the consequences that they lead to. As with fish in a bowl or an aquarium.
This is the perspective and distance I want to maintain. I hope this will allow me to play with the audience expectations and desires as we follow the day of Jan and Marysia and their growing frustration. Hopefully this will also underline the absurd nature of the situation they got themselves into resulting in some black humour.
Although Jan and Marysia will be eventually left unsatisfied, their meeting will perhaps allow them to move on from the point of life they stuck in. And we, for a moment during the dinner, will see a twisted vision of a possible but improbable family. Director Biography Piotr Litwin.

Friendless and regularly tormented by a vicious gang of bullies, Marek takes solace in his passion, art; drawing picturesque renditions of his local beach. Intention I chose this subject matter because I can relate to the struggle to fit in. As a kid, I moved around a lot after my parents divorced, and endured a period of bullying shortly after moving to a new town and new school.
The bullying centered on my Iranian heritage and in the end was the single-most important experience of growth I underwent throughout my childhood. Despite this, I still wish I had the services back then of a Sam; a loyal samurai to even up the number a little. In a way, I did; writing and cinema were my Sam.
I grew up instilled with the limitless optimism of charac-. Seaside Samurai is therefore about fiction directing truth. It is an effort to express the ancient importance of stepping out of reality in order to step back into it truly inspired. The film is also a homage to my late father, Afzal, who sadly passed away last year. Some of my fondest memories as a child were sitting beside him watching kung fu movies, believing one day I could fight the evil forces of the world too.
Maybe with this short, I still can. In addition to Rain, David is currently in development on his first feature as writer-director, The Frail. To cope with their incapacity to give life, couples buy young androids who grow up with them. Intention With Ctrl-Alt-Del, we guide the audience through a visual journey along the pathways of our consumption habits. What if mothers nurtured warm feelings of love for their mechanical children?
What would we be left with if we lost all form of compassion for humankind and only saw it as an expendable by-product of our society? Combining the emotional impact of a family drama with the action-driven narratives of the sci-fi genre allows us to explore the abyssal needs awoken in a mother by the loss of her child. Obsessed by an in-. A reality where again, hope lies in the younger generation. He works as a director, producer and cinematographer in France, Italy and Switzerland, accumulating award-winning short films, international commercials and feature film experience, which led him to co-found Turbulence Films with Klaus Pas in Ctrl-Alt-Del is a twenty-minute science fiction family drama telling the story of Amy, a loving mother forced to terminate her only daughter, a dysfunctional 13year-old android.
Deeply affected by this emotional void, she loses track of the reality she lives in. When Chris finds out, a violent clash follows, forcing Amy to choose between the child and her husband. Her choice leads her to discover that like her daughter, she is herself nothing more than a companion object, another android that will soon be disconnected and replaced.
Scriptwriter Biography After a career in finance, and a Master in film directing in Paris, Klaus worked as a producer, writer and director for both documentary and fiction. Synopsis Settled in Nice, Anna, 23, is a promising young photographer. One day, a phone call is enough to turn her life upside down. Torn between the conviction of being a bad mother and the fear that her mother-in-law will get custody of her child, Anna finally decides to spend the three days preceding the verdict of the judge with Pierre.
Totally inexperienced and awkward as a mother, she tries to overcome the rejection of her son. More and more involved, Anna realises that the only way to communicate with Pierre is to learn this language. During the Second World War my Jewish grandmother fled Austria and took refuge in France where she met my grandfather. They had three children but, struggling with money, had to give them away for adoption. At the age of 15, my father discovered that he was adopted. When he was 18, he travelled through France to find his biological mother.
Aboudi Lao gives me the opportunity to deal with this complicated subject. As children, my friends and I often invented a magic dialect in order to exchange secrets. This game was a symbol for a deeper dream, the possibility of creating a world in which imagination had no boundaries. Such creations are characteristic of childhood and, personally, I think they are most sacred. That is her last possibility for redemption.
Back to Paris, I was active in the same area for a production company specialised in kids TV programs. Then I worked as a web editorialist but soon discovered a need to learn the craft of screenwriting. It has been selected for European Short Pitch with Iloz Productions attached to the development. This desperate Artist put everything on one card to get a small role as an actor, although there was no job for him. But Kader is not stupid.
He is a fighter. With a breathtaking dance performance in front of the astonished eyes of Sharma Kader wins his respect. Nevertheless there is no job. Kader collapses. He leaves the office humbled. Meanwhile Sharma caught fire. He sees in Kader his long-awaited chance to get back into the spotlight.
When he finally has the role for Kader, all attempts to find the Tiger Artist fail. Its author the Tamil writer Ashoka Mitran gave me his blessing to adapt it. Now I am trying to create an audio-visual world that shows the cycle of dependency between art and capital in an original way. On the one side stays the poor tiger dancer Kader, who is a metaphor for an artist struggling for recognition and a basic living.
His antagonist, the lousy filmmaker Sharma, got stuck in his past glory. These two characters clash together in a typical up to date situation: in a humiliating casting with zero chance for. Kader to get a job. Tiger Fight is a perfect experimental field for a 12—14 min 3D live-action short. Stereoscopic shooting offers me the opportunity to capture the space with a presents and dynamic that was not possible in 2D.
The Tiger Artist extends his hand to the audience and takes him into another reality. The path of the Tiger is more than reality and creates new images within the spectator. The images invade you with the permanent fear of the possible death of Kader. His full length feature film debut Return of the Storks was the Slovak national entry for the 80th Academy Awards.
Besides his artistic work, he also works successfully as a contract director for TV and advertising and as producer, production manager, script editor and lecturer. Currently he writes on two feature film scripts and develops the short film Tiger Fight. Synopsis Incella is the teenage daughter of a greengrocer. She is a confused and vulnerable creature. Prompted by her alcoholic mother, she leaves to buy bread, when the elevator of the run-down Budapest apartment block breaks down and gets stuck for three days.
As no-one reacts to the alarm bell, Incella sits and waits patiently. The family notices with interest that the elevator is broken, and after a day After 3 days in her prison, Incella escapes. But to what end? It seems she had a better time inside. Intention In this grotesque short movie the protagonist is the house itself and the ensemble of its tenants. The characters, even Incella and her family, represent archetypes but all of them have distinctive attributes a dachshund, a saucepan, a walking frame.
The most recurring location of the movie is the stairwell, where the neighbours meet and where the elevator stands with Incella in it. Being jumped around by the fussy crowds of tenants the stairwell becomes the metaphor of intellectual impotency. The visual style and the material surroundings reflect the timeless state of Hungary and the disposition of people here to keep stalling. The approach is not that of kitchen sink realism, it is slightly elevated and cartoonish, both in terms of visual style set-design, lighting , and acting.
The non-hierarchical, ensemble cast is visually expressed by the long takes of the film, enabling the characters to enter and exit a scene, maintaining the illusion of perpetual action, while nothing significant happens. I directed TV spots for the French Mezzo TV and also participate in projects as co-writer and consultant on dramaturgy.
Synopsis year-old Sofia is a boarding school pupil. Solitary and distant, abandoned by her parents, she has an inner visible force, ready to explode. She goes to visit the only person she has an address for, a grandmother she never met. When she arrives, the old woman tells her to go away but Sofia decides to stay and take advantage of the situation. She imposes her presence but the old woman rejects her. Sofia realizes that she is looking for her own family.
In this little industrial town of eastern France, Sofia meets Bernardo, an older Italian worker, and they begin to pass time together without any expectations. Step by step, he begins to want to take care of her. When Bernardo must go back to Italy he asks her to go with him. Sofia cares about them both.
She has the possibility to leave but also the possibility to stay. She has to make a decision. Intention Sometimes, one reacts by withdrawing from the world - by closing doors. When you grow up without family, when you have to face a hostile environment, you learn to build yourself alone, without any love. Sofia never had a family, she is an outsider but she wants to change her life. She is looking for her own family. The most important question for Sofia is how she will be able to relate to other human beings.
Meeting this man, Bernardo, and her grandmother is a turning point for her. The script focuses on the confrontational relationship between two women of two different generations; how they evolve, how they tame each other. The script was built as a progression, with cuts, passages and pieces of dialogue. For the set, I have in mind industrial mining towns. They are empty, lifeless. Time seems to have stopped.
In this environment, Sofia changes and so do her relationships with others. All of these experiences, as well as her trips to Eastern Europe and other countries, have improved her artistic work. She has a poetic and contemplative approach to cinema; a cinema of contrasts, silence, empty spaces, waiting and loneliness but also of hope, movements and contradictory feelings.
Synopsis In the s, an intercity bus is struck by lightning, and its thirty passengers and driver unknowingly travel to the s. The bus suffers a flat tyre due to a big nail in the middle of the road and stops next to three billboards.
The oblivious bus driver, Marcel, starts changing the tyre, while the passengers notice a strange worker putting new posters on each of the billboards. One by one, the passengers are brainwashed by the posters, becoming super-consumers. As they run out of things to buy, they begin rioting. When Marcel finishes repairing the tyre he discovers that his passengers have gone mad. They begin to attack him, though he manages to escape, speeding away in the bus.
Soon enough, the same nail pierces the same tyre. The strange worker appears once again, and starts putting up a new poster on yet another nearby billboard…. Intention The Nail is a satirical short film which explores the brainwashing of society by advertising. Time travel serves as a fast-forwarding device, where thirty passengers on a bus from the early 20th century - representing a group of people from a more innocent time - travel to the year , allowing a social, cultural and temporal comparison of consumerism and materialism.
As the film has no dialogue, the sound design will be imperative in setting the tone. Sound effects will drive the characterisation and help create the atmosphere of a flat, deserted, windy landscape. The Nail is set on a simple country road which passes through endless fields. An old bus, a customised bicycle and three big billboards are the main props required. Dolby Digital 5.

Full of verve, the idiosyncr at ic Gitti is fearless in expressing her love and devotion for Chris, while Chris is more reserved in his outlook on life and sports, varying personal and professional degrees of insecurity.
When they casually run into another, obviously happier and more successful, couple th at on top of it all appears to be modern gender role proof, their rel at ionship destabilizes. In a silly at tempt at lifestyle bootlegging, Chris begins to show his wilful girlfriend who is boss, with the result th at Gitti's faith in her partner takes a hard knock. She at tempts to conform to his new ideal, but wh at begins as a playful experiment soon turns into a quiet struggle with her own personality.
While Chris flourishes in his role as the stronger one of the two, Gitti begins to loosen up in a completely new way. While Thomas is willing to fill the void of their f at her, Consul Jean, and to steer the firm through the times of moderniz at ion and rising competition, his brother Christian is trying to break away from any responsibility.

Berlin, The collapse of Nazi German y looms, but young Hilde marches through the rubble of Berlin with only one thought in her head: she wants to become a star. With luck, looks, the right men and overwhelming self-confidence, she makes her way in the film world, both during and after the war, swapping her Nazi lover for a young Jewish husband.

The result is a lyrical film essay about the city and the people whose skills, talent and ambition make it such a unique place: less hectic and glamorous than Paris or London, but possibly more stimul at ing.
