So Long, Kodachrome
Jim Granato / 2010 / United States / 7 mins
So Long, Kodachrome is an ode to super 8, and the most beloved film stock every made. While paying huge respects to the format, this original sound super 8 short also pays homage to an American 70′s landmark film.

Putain Lapin is about the meeting between a whore and a bear, that she thinks is a rabbit. It’s also about a desolate place where people get lost and leave by charters.

Mauricio Quiroga Kiro / 2010 / Bolivia, Argentina 9 mins
The man, the city, the machine. Once in the game, follow the instructions.

Naren Wilks / 2010 / United Kingdom / 3 mins
