Regular by Nata Metlukh
"The story is set in a graphic design world where fonts are the main characters. They have unique properties: Bold makes everything thicker, Italic tilts things, Monospace equalizes objects by width, etc. Fonts team up to build a garden, and the five boxing wizards jump in quickly to inspect their work. A negative space storm flushes everything away, but Regular comes and fixes the garden."
Logline: The five boxing wizards jump quickly.
à la fin… by Nicolas Lichtle.
"Here is a film ... , it's neither fiction nor animation, the graphic style is rather singular. It's a moment of introspection, very intimate, staged through a succession of small moments imbued with poetry, absurdity and sometimes surrealism…"

Fruit by Gerhard Funk
"Rise into being, mature, perish – 'Fruit' tells a creation story.
As the animated short film unfolds, it brings forth a play of shapes illustrating the dialog between two mythological forces – the West and the East."
Music by Tobias Schneider
Character design by Paul Muresan & Gerhard Funk
The Fishman by Leto S. Meade
"The journey of a dying fish’s last moments. 'The Fishman' formally embodies the transitory, shapeshifting nature of life and the inevitability of change by plunging its disembodied anthropomorphic protagonist between different mediums and styles."
From Over Here (On Stuttering) by Patrick Buhr
"This is a film about stuttering. Oh, and also about apple trees, catcallers, Goethe's Faust, pigeons, forests and girls on horses."
