The Fish Of My Life by Julius Sičiūnas (LT 2014, 6 min)
Once upon a time in the middle of nowhere there was a farmhouse. Two seniors lived there. Long, long ago they truly loved each other. Now their life is nothing but a routine. This is a story based on a true story. This is a story about loneliness. About endless aspirations in life. And pancakes.

Little Secret / Strach by Martin Krejčí (CZ 2013, 21 min)
We've all covered things up, but what happens when the consequences begin to snowball, and every minute it becomes harder and harder to take back the lie. Little Secret is inspired by a true story that happened in April 2012 in the Czech Republic and became a national scandal.

The Noisemaker / Triukśmadarys by Karolis Kaupinis (LT/SE 2014, 15 min)
A distant provincial school is waiting for an official delegation from the Ministry. They're about to bring a new school bell. This is not what the school needs though. Having shrunk throughout the years, it lacks two pupils to satisfy the governmental quota established for any school in the country to exist. The gift from the capital is a threat for the survival of the school. Anticipating the arrival of the delegation, the principal makes his best to mask the lack of pupils and avoid the unavoidable school closure.

Mother / Matka by Łukasz Ostalski (PL 2013, 30 min)
Małgorzata - an important politician - is going to her home at the lake. Her son - a drug addict - needs her help.
Małgorzata is asking her daughter for her support. At home they find Małgorzata’s semiconscious son and a massacred body of a young girl. In the face of the tragedy, their relationship gets complicated, disclosing their hidden grudges. The mother has to make the most difficult decision in her life.

Fragments / Fragmenty by Agnieszka Woszczyńska (PL 2014, 26 min) trailer
A collection of loosely connected scenes, depicting a breakdown of a relationship and a collapse of the world to which the main character is desperately clinging on to. Anna and her partner have well-paid jobs, intense sex and go jogging every other morning. They live comfortable yet monotonous bourgeois life. That makes Anna slowly fall apart.

Albert by Daniel Wawrzyniak (PL 2014, 24 min) web
Albert, this is your relaxation time. Take a deep breath…

Awesome / Äge by Rein Zobel (ET 2013, 9 min)
Murat is a 11-year-old boy who becomes deaf after an accident. Yet his endless optimism and desire to explore makes him see an opportunity to sense the world differently. Murat ignores the pity of the doctors and consolations of his enstranged father. He discovers the world of vibrations and wants to get to know it better. Only then can he solve the mystery of a tremor that surrounds the hospital.
