Marco Gadge
Marco Gadge's very funny film is a German BEND IT LIKE BECHAM set at a drama school in peril.
Anna Nilles & Marco Jake
In this biting satire, an aspiring teenage comedian joins a theatre group and is cast to play a school shooter. A film that satirizes the way buzz culture feeds national tragedies and reckons with the way social media shapes our engagement of violence and comedy.

Josh Wallace
A fateful chain of events begin to unravel after two brash insurance salesmen go knocking on the wrong door and find themselves trapped inside a stranger's basement. An exploration on the meaning and importance of class, status, and survival in an ever increasingly vicious world.
