Charlie Says - by Lewis Arnold

A young boy’s lie cuts through the calm of a family holiday and leaves a trail in its wake that threatens to grow into something more dangerous as dusk approaches. Starring Conner Chapman from Clio Barnard’s The Selfish Giant.

Tackling similar concepts to the classic Aesop’s Fable The Boy Who Cried Wolf, Arnold’s measured short once again showcases the directors confident style with a subtle tale of a young boy’s misguided attempts to get attention.

Rob Munday
The Boy Who Wanted to be a Lion - by Alois Di Leo

One day Max goes on a school trip to the zoo, where he sees a lion for the first time. A feeling begins to grow inside him that will change his life forever.

There is much to admire from director Alois Di Leo’s animation, from the 1960′s setting, the mix of techniques, to the bravery of its storytelling.

Jason Sondhi
LOMA - A Family Holiday - by Katri Vanhatalo

When two families have to share a cottage, a relaxing holiday seems a world away from the remote destination.

Hitman #5 - by Team Beard Films

Hitman #5 hunts his next target like an animal stalking his prey. The only problem is that Hitman #5 is an idiot.
