Surfing Einstein" is an artistic documentary film. It deals with a group of physicists at the University of Rome, who in 2016 proved the phenomenon of gravitational waves predicted by Albert Einstein. However, the film does not focus on the scientific facts, but on the human aspects of the research, frustrations and moments of happiness, as well as the togetherness of the group. The great feature here is that the scientists themselves - an international and very diverse group of people - describe their everyday lives and thoughts not in interview form, but as a dance.

jazz meets street 'THE MOVIE'
Directors Kathrin Eder, Tobias Hanny
Street Motion Studio and the association Verein Kreativ Fabrik Innsbruck create a digital contemporary document with the dance movie JMSTM. The basic idea was to offer the dancers, who did not want to give up dancing despite online operation, contact and event bans, a platform to show their skills. The 82-minute film represents the continuous loop of culural and social standstill and the subsequent reawakening during the pandemic operation.
Director S. Asher Gelman
Like rooms of a home, we live in rooms of our lives; trapping moments and memories to the subtle things surrounding us. In the home of our mind, we repeat the past to move on into the future. This 30 minute dance for film was shot in one take, to explore the memories sewing our rooms together and how we choose to step outside or stay recessed in our past.

The Great Grand Greatness Awards
Director Jo Hedegaard
Completion Date: April 17, 2022
3000 people are NOT gathered in the Asteroid Theatre on the night of the big award show. In fact, not a single soul could attend The Great Grand Greatness Awards. Not the host, not the presenters, not the winners, not the bands, not the products in the ‘commercials’. This presents a mounting challenge to host May Lifschitz, who finds the situation becoming increasingly existential, as the show descends into bizarreness and pure poetic chaos.
Director Yu-Chiao Wang 王又巧
Sugar, a household item today, was actually a luxury good in the past. It influenced the profit and lives of thousands of people. To profit from sugar, the upper class kept exploiting workers to make more sugar. Even though the lower class tried to overthrow them, hardly could they break the hierarchy.
This animation presents the situations of different classes, the conflict between them, and its final result to satirize the unchangeable political structure.
