Directed by Matthias Pöltinger and Zoe Fuchs (Germany)

Post Coital

Post-Coital is a web series about love, relationships and the conversations we have after sex. Each episode is set in a bed, and centres on a post coital conversation – from the most intimate, to the most awkward, to the most vulnerable, to the most liberating. 

This latest series follows Ella on her quest of sexual and self-discovery. When she finds herself (again) palmed off by yet another fuck-boy, Ella decides enough is enough, it’s time to dig deeper. In her encounters, she learns more about herself, her boundaries, her vulnerabilities, her power and what she really wants from a good relationship.

The series explores the intricacies of modern dating, provocatively unpacking the subjects that still remain taboo. It speaks to a young audience in a frank and honest way, and is filled with moments, characters and issues that everyone can relate to. And it’s funny, too.
Directed by Lowell Walker (UK)

Directed by Alexandra Antonopoulos (USA)

The Wonder

“The Wonder” is a reflective journey exploring the human sense of awe and wonder amidst the landscape and wildlife of Kenya.
This film follows the story of Ninian Lowis, a safari guide who has spent much of his life amongst the wilderness of Africa – surrounded by rich savannah, mountains, forests, deserts and the extraordinary creatures that reside within these very landscapes. The story revolves around his reflections of how nature helped overcome a sense of purposelessness during his youth, and how he came to realize that a sense of solitude and deep exposure to wild environments had the ability to awaken his senses.
Directed by Goh Iromoto (Canada)
