    Nullabor
    Australia
    A brash young punk and a laid back old codger travel across Australia's Nullabor -- the longest stretch of straight road in the world -- perfect for passing that slow motorist beside you. But in this vast and barren landscape, sometimes all you're left with is each other. So, be careful what you wish for. Directed by Alister Lockhart and Patrick Sarell.

    Maximall
    France
    A young worker is the last to leave his work at the big box retailer. What he doesn't realize is every evening the shopping carts release their pent up anger after a day's worth of abuse from annoying customers. Unfortunately, he will face the brunt of their wrath. He learns the hard way that materialism will trap us all. Animated by Axelle Cheriet, Hadrien Ledieu, Nawel Rahal, and Axel Tillement.
