The Lift
Dir: Robert Kohr
Website: kohrtoons.com
Everyone has been guilty of small misdeeds at one point or another. The Lift explores the consequences of one all too common act of not holding the elevator door open for someone eager to get on or worse, pushing the close button. An elevator interaction goes wrong, prompting a young woman to learn about being insensitive and to hold open the elevator door the next time around.

This new character, Smart, moves fast on demand and seems unaffected by an external circumstances. In order to challenge Smart, Plus and Minus are compelled to combine their unique individual capabilities. Will this Hybrid Union win the race against the newcomer?

Dir: Ben Richardson
Website: seed-movie.com
An egg and an apple build competing broadcast towers that vie for the attention of a transistor radio. With its complex characterization and narrative of animal evolution, competition and reproduction, SEED is a beautiful and sinister stop-motion story about the struggle to survive.
No Naked!
Dir: Caroline Foley

Two kids, Ty and Yelly, decide to express their freedom by getting naked. So they do. And good times are had! That is until the No Naked Horse shows up...
Insurgency of Ambition
Dir: Anya Belkina
Website: anyabelkina.com
"The illusion of success lures a man to the very threshold of glory only to unsheathe its true, frightening nature as he gets within reach. Conceived in the wake of short lived military successes in Iraq, the film questions the relevance of "victory" memes at the time of globalization. Operating on a more intimate level, it ponders the cost of anyone's unrestrained personal ambitions."
Dancer and the Red Ball
Dir: Tony Cammarata
A prima ballerina's debut is interrupted by a red ball.
