PANIC ATTACK! | 3 MIN | USA Directed by Eileen O'Meara
You know the nagging thoughts that start with "did I leave the coffee on?" and turn in to "am I pregnant with a devil-baby?” This hand-drawn animation explores anxiety, obsession, and one woman’s slippery hold on reality.
CHALK | 12 MIN | UK Directed by Lauren Jupp
A young woman must find the strength to stand up to her grandad after being forced into a snooker club scam with dangerous consequences.
PRACTICE | 9 MIN | UK Directed by Deva Palmier
Alja falls in love online with Ebb, a self-described jihadi, and longs to visit him. But he insists on setting a series of escalating challenges to prove that she’s tough enough. When events start taking a darker turn, it becomes Alja’s turn to challenge Ebb’s commitment and integrity.
PRACTICE is a deceptively dark film that focuses on themes of grooming and radicalisation, and also challenges us to look at the way we pre-judge people of different nationalities and religions.
