Miss Todd (13 min, 2013, United Kingdom) dir. by Kristina Yee
In 1910 New York, a woman had a dream: to fly. Miss Todd, our heroine, works to understand the principles of flight, as people all over the world were doing, but she has more than gravity holding her down.

December 25 (1 min, 2012, Australia) dir. by Wendy Dent
A Christmas message speaks louder than words. Produced without a camera, actors, interviewees or even animation, December 25 delivers a new take on Christmas- and the explosive significance of subtext. The film's context is Christmas, but wait a minute- it's about much more than that. In just 60 seconds this film reveals the immeasurable power of words. SF Premiere.
