6acc77101d poster

“A Dog’s Story” is an absurdist short that tells the tragi-comic tale of an old dog who contemplates his bleak future after being laid off from his security job. The Dog has made a slide presentation of his current predicament and how he got here — an all-too-frequent story that many of us have also experienced in this new competitive economy where jobs are being replaced by automation and being too old can leave you marginalized.

As the two couples start to get to know each other, their difference seem to melt away with the help of accidentally injected edible marijuana.

One thing leads to another and they find themselves on the verge of “The Great Switcheroo” when the unexpected happens resulting in confusion, hilarity and absurdity.

Short Film: THE GLORIOUS PEANUT, 18min., Belgium, Comedy

73b1217919 poster“The Glorious Peanut” is not a story about a peanut, it’s the story about Patrick. And Patrick is not a peanut, he’s a 30 years old bald lumberjack. It’s important to say he’s bald because that’s why he’s very unconfident. But his lack of confidence is also due to his Father, who crushes him like a peanut. Patrick dreams about having friends, and above all about having a girlfriend… Griet for example, the young flemish farmer girl from the village, whom he fancies since forever. But being bald, he will never get friends, let alone Griet. But one day gets to eat a peanut and that will change his life….

Short Film: THE VICTORY OF CHARITY, 24min., Austria, Comedy

Musicologist Szabo lives in a small studio apartment full of plates, books and archives. To end this, his girlfriend Kathi invaded the apartment in Szabo’s absence to at least remove old clothes. But just below was a rare, original stage costume of an Austrian beat band, which is to be exhibited in a museum of postwar Austrian popular music. To get the jacket back, Szabo does not shy away from a break in the charity clothing collection. His young, aspiring colleague Fitzthum is urged by Szabo to help him. But in contrast to Szabo, who is latently degenerate, Fitzthum has a lot to lose in the night action: his job, his career – and possibly his freedom.
