1. MIDDAG FÖR TVÅ (DINNER FOR TWO)
Björn Andresson (Sweden)
A young woman (Murinka Printz) has just got into the bath when the doorbell rings. She answers the door, to find an elderly man (Per Jörnelius) offering a painting for sale.

2. WILLIAM DUPP TO THE RESCUE
Apone Productions (Somerset)
Sgt William Dupp, who has retired from the police force very early, is asked to do battle again with Alvin Lucifer. They have met previously, but William only wishes to tend his garden without interference from anyone (including his girlfriend). This is a tongue-in-cheek, but tense, adventure which also looks at the need of people (especially movie audiences!) to have a hero to look up to. Widescreen format; directed by Richard Jones.

3. THE FINAL TAKE
Nottingham Cine & Video Makers
A group of young film-makers is hard at work on their production, trying desperately to get it right, despite certain problems they encounter! Not quite how an IAC Club might go about it, of course, but there are laughs along the way ... ! Written and directed by James Heppell.

4. DEMONS
Ken Wilson (West Yorks)
On the way home from a shopping trip, two friends (Carol Wilson and Yvonne Crann) get caught up in a traffic jam and find a road off so that they can make better progress. Without a map, however, they get lost. The driver telephones her husband (Phillip Crann) from a callbox. Back on the road, their troubles are not over - they get a puncture. The driver walks back to the telephone, leaving her friend alone in the car ... The suspense is well built, and the performances are all very natural, adding to the reality of the situation. Written, shot and directed for Phase 4 Films.

5. F-205
Leandro Blanco (Spain)
We are in the cockpit of a modern jumbo jet when there is an emergency ... We hear the voices of those involved, while visuals of just the instrument panels tell the story. A feast of editing!
