    • Lili. Director An van Dienderen, Belgium 2015, [0:00]

      China Girls was the name given to women whose faces act as the guide for colour balance in film stocks and who, despite the moniker, almost always displayed caucasian skin tones.

      Lili is nominated for the Short Film Award.

      Search Film. Director Duncan Marquiss, UK 2015 [12:10]

      Considering innate human foraging behaviour by comparing a biologist’s field study of goshawks with searching in other contexts.
      Someone Who Isn’t Me, Director Jenna Collins, UK 2015 [34:45]
      Narratives mined from online drug user support forums, where codified anonymising practices create an uncanny duality of simultaneous intimacy and disavowal.

      Black Code/Code Noir, Director Louis Henderson, UK 2015 [44:08]

      Using the Internet as the social site of excavation and drawing on videos recorded on mobile phones and uploaded to YouTube, this film explores the ‘coding’ of the bio-political lives of African Americans throughout history.
