- "Belly" Julia Pott. An elephant, a horse and a monster are the characters in this British-born animator heartbreakingly poignant animated film.
- "Hey Jane" L.A.-based A.G. Rojas has brought his sometimes surreal, sometimes shocking storytelling sensibility to music videos including this one from Spiritualized.
- "Searching for Yellow" Oregon-based Ian Clark's latest is about a graffiti artist who makes nature his canvas.
- "Life & Freaky Times" Jillian Mayer and Lucas Leyva mashed up 2 Live Crew and Chris Marker.
- "Fishing Without Nets" L.A.-based Cutter Hodierne's riveting short film about a reluctant Somali pirate won the Jury Award at Sundance. Followed by a skype Q&A with animator Julia Pott.
