Nobody’s Child   (USA)

Annie and Paul have been best friends for years. Annie discovers she may have breast cancer and wants Paul, who is gay, to raise her son if anything happens to her, rather than the boy's father. Paul, young and in love with a fast gay lifestyle, is not so sure that's such a great idea.

Lake Effect   (USA)
 Michael Chadwick
Runtime: 10 mins 
‘Lake Effect’ is a short film exposing the complexity of grief that accompanies tragedy. Written and directed by Michael Chadwick and produced by SHEP Films, it follows a grieving father, Alex, whose daughter has recently drowned, as well as Alex’s girlfriend, Julia, who joins him on the lake for the first time since his daughter’s death. By exploring the inner recesses of the grieving mind and expressing the beautiful, mysterious, and violent associations that come with mourning over a loved one, ‘Lake Effect’ considers what it means to share one’s pain in a relationship.

Forgetting Regret   (USA)

Conrad is a young man who had it all - a great girlfriend, a supportive family, and a baseball scholarship to Stanford University.

RomKom (Croatia)
Zvonimir Rumboldt
Goran Bogdan, Bojan Navojec, Iva Mihalić, Robert Kurbaša, Ana Majhenić
Runtime: 36 mins
How do you remember your lines? Are you really naked when you shoot a love scene? How can you kiss a stranger and pretend to be in love? Every actor has heard these questions at least once...We meet Her and Him, embracing for the cameras on the set of a soap opera. They are the main characters in a hit series, and the antiheroes of their own lives. As make-believe emotion turns to real passion, one of them will mistake it for love; while the other will sacrifice this new romance when a richer and more powerful suitor comes along.

Happy Birthday  (Switzerland) 
 Kathrin Frey
Runtime: 4 mins
A man goes out for a late night stroll. 
He walks down alleys lost in thought, musing about a hopeless love affair. 
On hearing a mysterious sound, 
his lonesome wanderings seem to come to an end...
