The Hunchback
Gabriel Abrantes and Ben Rivers | Portugal and France 2016, 30 minutes
In this delirious sci-fi riff on Arabian Nights’ ‘Tale of the Hunchback’, Ben Rivers and Gabriel Abrantes submerge viewers in a technological dystopia reigned by Dalaya.com, a mega-corporation that forces its employees to ‘relax’ at company-run medieval reenactments.Winner of the 2016 IndieLisboa Award for Best Portuguese Short Film.

Sticky Drama
Jon Rafman and Daniel Lopatin | 2015, 11 minutes
Featuring a cast of over 35 children, as well as a soundtrack by Oneohtrix Point Never, Sticky Drama portrays the development of a role-playing game set in a fantastical and violent world in which its participants struggle to preserve their memory and past histories.

The Mess
Peter Burr | 2016, 14 minutes
A Stalker-inspired journey to the threshold of a utopian labyrinth. We follow the perspective of a solitary woman who descends into an abandoned subterranean arcology. She is tasked with cleaning up the glitchy mess that has spawned from this feral structure, becoming lost in the process.
