The Scroll Of The Prophet Isaiah (Canada)

By Jake Kovnat

"One day, in May of 2018 as I was driving through Niagara Falls, NY, I passed a home unlike anything I had ever seen before. I slammed on the brakes and reversed to take some pictures of this stunning and unusual work of art tucked away in an otherwise unremarkable neighborhood. As I finished, a man who was sitting across the street called me over to talk. His name was Isaiah and the conversation that began on that day culminated in this short film. Maybe our encounter was meant to be." Running time: 00:03:08.

Everything Is Under Control (U.K.)

By Roland Denning

A story told by machines to humans in a world that has crashed and then been re-booted from a back-up. But the back-up was faulty and glitches are increasingly apparent. Have human beings and machines merged? Is the whole world counterfeit? Is free will illusion? Our machine is an unreliable narrator if ever there was one. The machines tell us that everything is under control, but can we believe them? Constructed out of archive material and an AI synthesised voice. A wry philosophical reflection on our current predicament. Running time: 00:06:25
