Birdlime is the name for a sticky substance, usually made from holly bark or mistletoe, which is spread on branches to trap wild birds intended for export or trade.

Directed by: Ned Wenlock
Runtime: 5 min

Some stags get all the birds. But not Lone Stag. He lacks a certain something on the
antlers front: antlers. And without them he has little chance of getting any birds to help him make music for the spring jam. So far Lone Stag has recruited one bird; his friend the Sleepy Kiwi. But this hasn’t gone so well: Kiwi can’t sing. So Lone Stag ditches his friend and when a desperate bid for attention among his better endowed peers goes awry, Lone Stag is propelled in to the firing line; shaken and stirred; dropped from a height and then carried on a wave of discovery until he’s finally illuminated in the art of making beautiful music, his own way. There’s just one catch: In order to make his new ability work in the wild, he’s going to have to realize that the help of his friend is actually something he can’t do without.

VACANCY

Venue: Red Bank Middle School

Directed by: Urte Zintler
Runtime: 5 min

The non-narrative animated film is a poetic debate with the issue of "HOME" and the experience of the outland as a new home. A collage of fragments of Hilde Domin s poems and a concentration and overlay of sketchy drawings and sound elements - always incomplete, always close to disappearance. It describes the search for an inner place of calm - a timeless space of deceleration.

"One must be able to part and still be like a tree: the roots remaining in the ground, landscape passing and we are fixed." (Hilde Domin)
