A Girl From Beacon Ridge

Director: Kirk Demorest.

Phoebe and Blaze, two middle school best friends, suddenly find their lives upside down when Phoebe's homophobic parents decide the girls shouldn't play together any longer.


Director: Sabine Hiebler & Gerhard Ertl.

Live. Love. Dance. Now! Mae (Anna Posch) roams the streets of Vienna as a punk in her dead brother's Converse shoes. She lives on canned beer, sprays walls, tries her hand at poetry slams. She’s not interested in bourgeois life but in stronger experiences. When she is sent to an AIDS center to work off a punishment, she meets and falls in love with Paul (Markus Subramaniam). CHUCKS, the new film by Sabine Hiebler and Gerhard Ertl ("Anfang 80 /Coming of Age"), tells the featherlight story of growing up between life and death. Full of humor, at times rebelliously loud, then extremely tender – completely in the spirit of the literary version it is based on, the successful novel by Cornelia Travnicek about which Clemens J. Setz once wrote: “If I were to get stuck in a lift with a character of contemporary literature, I would want it to be Mae. I don’t know whether I would come out safe and sound, but it would be worth it.”

Big Game, Review: Game on Incredible and ambitious, Big Game is also warm and infectious. It is a good example of how some thoughtful writing can make a far-fetched premise convincing and exciting. Jalmari Helander, the Finnish film-maker who first made a splash with the controversial Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010), has adapted a 2013 novel by Petri Jokiranta and blended both Hollywood and northern Finland with bartender-like finesse. A hunting clan in Finland is initiating 13 year-ol...

Director: Erik de Goederen.
A nine year old boy (Pepijn Borst) lives in a world which, seen through his eyes, is deeper and more mysterious than a superficial glimpse would suggest. Sometimes the most simple things in life contain sheer beauty and enchantment.
But the boy is lonely too, because he cannot share his experiences with others. Who sees what he sees? Who hears what he hears? And who dreams what he is dreaming?

First Fruits
