A RUNNING JUMP by Mike Leigh.
Mike Leigh's hilarious comedy is about all kinds of sport, as well as twins, taxis and dodgy second-hand cars.

SWIMMER by Lynne Ramsay.
A poetic journey following a lone swimmer through Britain's waterways and coastline, with a soundtrack of British music ranging from Delius to The La's.

WHAT IF by Max & Dania.
A celebration of urban youth culture, WHAT IF uses Rudyard Kipling's poem If to tell the story of Joe, who learns some key lessons about life from a guardian angel.
