The Brothers McLeod and Go Short already go a long way back. During our first edition we screened their film Codswallop, which got nominated for a BAFTA. Now, 4 years later, we are including one of their newest animations that was made as a part of the Channel 4 “Random Acts”-series. Phone Home is a hilarious short showing us what happened during an unique event somewhere in the future and the enthusiastic response to it. A lot can happen in a couple of months!

Ok, this film has been going around for a while now, but it is so good we just don’t want you to miss out on it. It has already been screened at our festival during the third edition and was one of the audience-favorites so now it’s out to conquer audiences online. Little Quentin is an animation with a high dose of film noir elements and a great couple of twists, reminding me a lot of Who Framed Roger Rabit. To sum up the film in a couple of words would be something like strippers, bunnies, murder, suspense and clowns. I mean, if this doesn’t make you want to watch the film immediately, I don’t know what will.
If you like this one, keep a look out for the feature film Vink & Hooft are working on. Trippel Trappel will be about “Sinterklaas”, but if it will only be a bit like this film, you know it will be good!
Ok, we have to admit that this documentary has been circling around the web for some time already…. but it’s just too good to miss out on. You may know Joost & Schulman from the great documentary Catfish. Now they made a short portrait of, as the title already gives away, John Baldesarri. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, watch the film! As you will see, you probably do know the work of this “Godfather of conceptual art” already. The guys crammed a lot of information, images and one-liners in 6 minutes, but still keep it playfull and humorous. Oh and I forgot to mention the best thing about this film: it’s narrated by Tom Waits.
