The Chimney SwiftOnline Screening
Director : Frédéric Schuld
19th century in Europe. A child climbs up a chimney while a bird sails down into it to build a nest. An encounter with no way back.
A British chimney sweeper describes his everyday routine of forcing young kids to become workers. While we observe a kid cleaning a chimney, the master's statement gets more personal with every sentence until we understand, that he is speaking about his own past.

How to Disappear
Director : TOTAL REFUSAL
Robin Klengel, Leonhard Müllner, Michael Stumpf
Is it possible to desert in a shooter game? Along this question, "How to Disappear" reflects on war and game, discipline and disobedience. For the history of defiance is as old as the history of war - and yet the act of desertion goes beyond the game's space of action. Shot in the martial yet picturesque war landscapes of the online shooter ""Battlefield V"", the hyperreal graphics become the backdrop for an essay-like narrative.
The Tawny OwlOnline Screening
Director : Aleksandar Radan
Lurking in the grass has paid off for the fox. The narrator’s apprehensive voice takes us to an island where a battle for survival rages among creatures feathered and furry. After all, a bear is only cute if you’re not a rabbit. The animation resembles landscape shots from animal documentaries—but instead of Smokey the Bear we’re served pointed humor, instead of glossy nature, the images are rampant with sprawling absurdity.
