After You

When a man holds a door open for a woman, that’s just being polite. But when he insists she goes first, maybe that’s different…

Director James Hughes

The Stomach

The Stomach

Frank’s had enough. A spirit medium whose unique and grotesque method of channeling the dead is putting his own life at risk, he wants out. But others, in this world and the next, have plans of their own. Part body horror, part crime thriller, part ghost story, The Stomach is a unique tale of Supernatural Noir.

Director Ben Steiner


If I Can Dream

A peculiar journey following the artist Dmitri Galitzine as he chases his dream of being the best Elvis Tribute Artist in Europe.

Director Mattia Reiniger



Pastry is a short film about a ‘sweet’ seduction. It is a light-hearted but meaningful look at how women perceive their body weight or shape in relation to others. Our fairy-tale starts when Caroline, a business woman in her early thirties, allows her desire for a doughnut to win over her months of dieting. But the first doughnut leads to a doomed diet, and so much more.

Director Eduardo Barreto
