The Hungry Corpse (Gergely Wootsch, 2012)
Set in London’s bustling, desolate Trafalgar Square and featuring a rather hungry corpse and a pigeon. Voiced by Bill Nighy and Stephen Mangan.
Berlin Recyclers (Nikki Schuster, 2012)
Techno, cobblestones and a lot of graffiti. A wild ride to urban hideouts where little creatures dwell.
Choir Tour (Edmunds Jansons, 2012)
A world-famous boys’ choir goes on tour. In the hands of their conductor they are obedient but when he gets trapped in an elevator they become playful children.
Luminaris (Juan Pablo Zaramella, 2011)
In a world controlled and timed by light, an ordinary man has a plan that could change the natural order of things.
Big Bang Big Boom (Blu, 2010)
The largest large-scale animated film you’ve ever seen. An unscientific point of view on the beginning and evolution of life … and how it probably ends.
Robots of Brixton (Kibwe Tavares, 2011)
Brixton has degenerated into an area inhabited by London’s new robot workforce – robots built and designed to carry out all of the tasks which humans no longer want to do.
