Judge Vaughn, a modern Shakespearean actor becomes psychologically troubled while playing Hamlet on stage. His connection to the play takes him back in time to 1920, where he must unravel the mystery surrounding his past life and death. What he uncovers is more than a parallel existence, but his attempt to repair the damage done in the past may leave him there.


A fascinating puzzle, a tale of parallel stories in different time frames, reminiscent of hypnotic movies like "Dead Again", "The Time Traveler's Wife" and "Vertigo".


GENRE:  Sci-fi; Adventure, Family, Time-travelspan / 82 minutes / English












A ruthless scientist, Cal Zimmerman, is being interrogated about an experiment that he performed two years ago. During the same period, Abel, a depressed workaholic in a science research lab, who had lost his wife and only daughter in a fatal accident, discovers the clone of his daughter in his house... 

LEA is a mind-bending, suspenseful journey into the near future, where clones and androids will be living among us...

A Comedy about Music, Life and Chasing Your Dreams


Steffie Waters has lived her whole life in a small and strangely musical country town, brought up by her grandmother Maria. Steffie would love to get to the big city but is held back by her loyalty to her boyfriend Mike. When Sebastian and Kev, two aging judges from a struggling reality TV show arrive in town to run a music competition, Steffie has to make some tough decisions about her future. As the week in the small country town unfolds, Sebastian - who is Maria's old flame - is confronted with the consequences of his past, and he and Steffie must both work out what is truly important in life.

Featuring a superb soundtrack, The Competition is a warm-hearted story of what it really takes to follow your dreams.

Award Winning Preschool animation in HD:




A 78 part TV SERIES, with all episodes completed. This is a totally restored (HD,colour corrections, pan+scan, etc.) version of a TV series which had been broadcast before:  all ratings were top-ratings, and the series was selected (Time) # 25 of 50 top Children's TV Shows ever. Running time: 8 to 13 minutes per episode




The timeless classic and eternally beloved story of pure and idealistic love.


Few works so completely capture a universal aspect of human experience the way Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" captures pure and idealistic love. Few works have lasted in time and been so beloved that they are refreshed with each generation. Look at popular music charts and references will abound. Look at school productions and the play will be there. Here now is the story expressed in stunning animation in an age sensitive portrayal aimed at pre and young teen audiences (8 to 16). We forget sometimes that Shakespeare's Juliet was thirteen years old and Romeo not much older. 


"Romeo and Juliet" fills any family oriented line-up and amply fills the role of beloved classic.






Brian Cass


94 minutes / HD / English











Directed by Ulrika Bengts, director of Finland's 2013 Oscar contender, The Disciple.


A classical movie with a progressive message.


A hauntingly beautiful and unusual coming-of-age tale, filmed on 35mm. The acting and directing matches the high quality of the writing. Touching, yet not overly emotional, it draws you in from the first moment and transports you to 1890 with IRIS, who, abandoned by her artist mother, discovers the joys of friendship and family on a remote island.It's a story of the human condition and how even deep prejudices can be overcome by the simple act of kindness and the willingness to strive for individuality. 


"Life doesn't have to be either-or, it can be both."  

GENRE: Family / DIRECTOR: Ulrika Bengts / 81 minutes / 35 mm / Swedish with English Subtitles
