According to a press release from the organizer, highlights of the show will include: Grant Orchard's BAFTA and Sundance Jury Award-winning short "The Morning Stroll"; the experimental documentary on the Gulf of Mexico,"We'll Become Oil"; and the stop-motion animation "Notes on Biology", winner of Best Short at SXSW, a film, interactive and music conference and festival held every spring in Texas, US.

In the Brazilian short, "Street Vendor Cinema", a filmmaker and his team set up a stall that makes and sells short films on demand, where wild fantasies come to life in the middle of a bustling marketplace.
