*_Kaulah Yang Aku Mahu (You Are The One I Want)* (4 min, 2010, Malaysia) dir. by Mien Lor
An older woman, a younger man, a simple love story. World Premiere.
Miss Todd_ _(13 min, 2013, United Kingdom) dir. by Kristina Yee
In 1910 New York, a woman had a dream: to fly. Miss Todd, our heroine, works to understand the principles of flight, as people all over the world were doing, but she has more than gravity holding her down. In this animated, stop-motion musical, Miss Todd’s plight and adventure soar out of her forgotten presence in aviation history. SF Bay Area Premiere.
Mademoiselle Kiki et les Montparnos (14 min, 2012, France) dir. by Amelie Harrault
‘Kiki de Montparnasse’ was the unwary muse of major avant-garde painters of the early twentieth century. Memorable witness of a flamboyant Montparnasse, she emancipated from her status as a simple model and became a Queen of the Night, a painter, a press cartoonist, a writer and a cabaret singer. SF Bay Area Premiere.

*_Beside Her_ *(16 min, 2012, USA) dir. by Carrie Carnevale

December 25 (1 min, 2012, Australia) dir. by Wendy Dent
A Christmas message speaks louder than words. Produced without a camera, actors, interviewees or even animation, December 25 delivers a new take on Christmas — and the explosive significance of subtext. The film’s context is Christmas, but wait a minute — it’s about much more than that. In just 60 seconds this film reveals the immeasurable power of words. SF Premiere.
*_Tits._ *(5 min, 2013, USA) dir. by Louisa Bertman
