THE PAINTER, Director: Vicki Lau
A lowly painter, Tabor, stumbles across an incredibly powerful paintbrush that allows him to live his painted creations; although his obsession with this gift soon brings forth deadly, life-threatening consequences.
BRIGHTON, Director: Pierre Stefanos
BRIGHTON follows the journey of Edward as he ventures to the famed English south coastal resort for a day on the town. The reason for his trip is unclear, at first, as we watch him paste photographs of himself as a young boy at famed monuments around Brighton, all the while ignoring phone calls that come in to his mobile throughout the day from his boss and his boyfriend. BRIGHTON is the follow-up to the acclaimed short film BEDFELLOWS, and the second in a planned trilogy of films called The Shakespeare Trilogy. BEDFELLOWS screened at over 140 films festivals in 40 countries during a 23-straight-month festival run, and won over 30 jury and audience awards.
LULLABY FOR ANDRONICUS, Director: Daniel Grove
Andronicus is a young boy with an active imagination. When he fails to coax his grieving mother out of bed, he's left to his own devices. With his father's movie camera he begins to document his day. But as the day progresses the camera becomes not just a toy but an emotional clutch as he uncovers memories and plots the emotional trajectory of the recent past, coming to terms with the very event his mother grieves over.
MACHSOM, Director: Joel Novoa
Yaniv Greenblatt, a young soldier, disrupts his Israeli home life and confronts his pacifist beliefs when he takes in Mohammed, a Palestinian boy stranded after curfew.
WINTER STORM, Director: Attila Adam
An excited father and his sleepy son set out for an early morning hunting trip in the mountains. The son falls asleep during the car ride, so the father decides to venture out alone, leaving the fate of his son up to the elements.
