Aya” (France/Israel, 40 min. Oded Binnun, Mihal Brezis) Two strangers unexpectedly meet at an airport. He mistakenly assumes her to be his assigned driver. She, enchanted by the random encounter, does not hurry to prove him wrong.

Boogaloo and Graham” (U.K., 14 min. Michael Lennox, Ronan Blaney) Jamesy and Malachy are over the moon when their soft-hearted dad presents them with two baby chicks to care for. Raising their tiny charges, declaring themselves vegetarian and dreaming of running a chicken farm, the two boys are in for a shock when their parents announce that big changes are coming to the family. Starring Martin McCann, Charlene McKenna, Riley Hamilton and Aaron Lynch.

Butter Lamp (La Lampe Au Beurre De Yak)” (France/China, 15 min. Hu Wei, Julien Féret) A young itinerant photographer and his assistant offer to photograph some Tibetan nomads in front of various backgrounds.

Parvaneh” (Switzerland, 25 min. Talkhon Hamzavi, Stefan Eichenberger) A young Afghan immigrant travels to Zurich where she encounters a punk named Emily.

The Phone Call” (U.K., 20 min. Mat Kirkby, James Lucas) Heather (played by Oscar nominee SALLY HAWKINS) is a shy lady who works at a helpline call center. When she receives a phone call from a mystery man (played by Oscar winner Jim Broadbent), she has no idea that the encounter will change her life forever.

Introduction by "Butter Lamp" director Hu Wei and producer Julian Feret.
