FLASH (Spain, 7 min): When a lonely man enters a photo booth, the pictures that emerge are wholly unexpected. Could he have finally met his match?

MR. MERGLER'S GIFT (Canada, 30 min): A revisit of one of the most popular award winning shorts in Cinema Society history...with a twist!

THE PRESENT (Germany, 4 min): A young boy who spends most of his time playing video games has his world turned around when his mother gives him a very special puppy for a present.

THE RIGHT PERSON FOR THE JOB (France, 8 min): John, a middle-aged professional recently laid off due to downsizing, nervously awaits his first appointment at a job interview center and has the luck of drawing the interview from Hell. Revenge, when it comes, is so sweet!
