1000 Brazils of Truth by Sheena Rossiter and Sandro Silva (2021 / 3:14 / Canada). Filmmakers Sheena Rossiter and Sandro Silva perform a spoken word song that's dedicated to São Paulo, a megacity full of paradoxes. Through archive footage they filmed between 2011 and 2017, Sheena and Sandro show the highs and lows of a country that goes from being an emerging market, economic powerhouse, to one on the brink of collapse.

Before, Mer Bleue, Presque Vu, The Space Shuttle Challenger and What Comes Between by Cecilia Araneda. Cecilia Araneda is a Chilean-Canadian filmmaker and curator came to Canada as a child as a refugee together with her family, after they escaped Chile's right wing military dictatorship. Araneda has completed 15 short films to-date, which have been presented at film festivals, artist run centres and art museums around the world, and that have been recognized with various awards and distinctions nationally and internationally.

Focal Point, Recollection - Premonition, Spark, and Transit - Destination by Kent Tate. Kent Tate is a Canadian artist/filmmaker whose work explores the dichotomy between tranquility and activity in our natural and manufactured worlds. Time, motion and stillness are intertwined through Tate's work to act like a fulcrum upon which the environmental, social and philosophical aspects of his projects are held in dynamic balance.

For Your Pleasure by Maja Hodoscek (2021 / 28:23 / Slovenia). A young actress from Slovenia performs in front of the camera for several hours, without direction, script, or any other instruction. The only source of material that she can rely on is herself. 

Justice by Jesi Jordan (2020 / 2:13 / Canada). This animation is about the symbiotic relationship humans have with earth and about a mother's journey to seek justice for her child. The big foot tramples on a baby flower before it has the chance to flourish. Her mother journeys through the roots of the earth and sprouts into various forms of life as the tries to cling onto the memory of her child one last time. 

Red Tunnel (紅色隧道) by Qiuli Wu (2021 / 15.26 / China/Canada). To celebrate Grandma Wu's birthday, the villagers assembled plastic tarps around the village—a canopy that resembled a red tunnel. Weaving inside and outside of the canopy, a secret mechanism of domination may be glimpsed.

Wave by Wrik Mead (2021 / 4m / Canada). Tender memories of a first gay embrace, of shock and exhilaration-and disavowal-animated against the waves of a deep blue lake. This animated biography tells the story of the artists' first encounter with another boy.
