As guest shorts we will have: “Zur rechten Zeit”, by Eliza Petkova
Synopsis: Adriane Gertz is a philosophy teacher at a high school. Her goal is to be socially independent, but a love affair with one of her students shatters her quest for self-reliance. Her days are increasingly filling up with power games and the fear of loss. She painfully realizes that it is impossible to avoid being human. “At the right time” paints the picture of a woman that represents the cold and solitude of a society in which the fear of failure exceeds over the lust for life.

short by british filmmaker Edward Tracy who is coming to present his short “Captcha”
Synopsis: In a futuristic version of 1940s London, an injured man turns out to have had a love implant put inside him without his knowing, in order to make him fall him love with a spy.
