Black Shore
Dirs. Jon Park & Grant White
UK | 22 mins
Logline: In a bleak British seaside town a family is stalked by an amorphous presence.


Dir. Ben Reid
UK | 20 mins
Logline: When a worker falls to his death at a care home, it appears to be a terrible accident. But when a detective questions a young man with Down syndrome spotted at the scene, they uncover a crime more shocking than anyone imagined.


Punch It!
Dir. Perrier Oliver
France | 20 mins
Logline: Tom, a young skater, roams with its board in an outer-urban environment. He penetrates into a carnival closed to the public and stops in front of a punchball in working order. He gets hooked and after several fruitless attempts typing of all his strengths then manages to activate the jackpot.


I Don't Want To Set The World On Fire
Dir. Marcus Liversedge
UK | 10 mins
Logline: Society is coming to an end in the UK. But Emma and Paul are in luck, they built a bunker in their back garden and they will just sit it out. As long as they have each other and enough to eat, they should be fine. Their only contact to the outside world is their wind-up radio. But their dreams of safety are shattered.


Ghost of a Chance
Dir. Manes Duerr
USA | 11 mins
Logline: Ghost of a Chance is a snapshot into the relationship of a young working class American couple. Two individuals bonded together through the expectance of a newborn baby, yet with different priorities - racing through their lives, we question whether one man’s childhood dream is more important than three people’s reality.


The Cunning Man
Dir. Zoë Dobson
UK | 13 mins
Logline: The Cunning Man is inspired by a real Cunning Man, John Harries (c.1785 - 1839). It's an enchanted tale of compassion in the face of callous greed.


After each film there will be a minute-long break, during which we invite the audience to complete scorecards. The cards go towards the scoring of the films and are sent directly to the filmmakers to provide insight into the audience's response.
