1. GREENHOUSE
Tim Jones, FACI (Kent)

2. DIMATO
Urbain Appeltans (Belgium)
Antiques dealer Martijn Vandezande (Staf Hoste) decides to retire and sells up. He goes for a cycle ride into the country and meets up with Wannes Tores (Rem Vastenavonde), the owner of a boat ('Dimato'). They hit it off and join forces in a new life together. This is a deceptively simple movie - but is beautifully crafted in every department.

Otto Horn (Germany)
The title refers to the town in Spain where the famous (or infamous!) film director Luis Bunuel was born in 1900.

There are a number of clips (mostly in B&W) from some of the films, including the notorious surreal Le Chien Andalou.
