Description: The key ingredient in bird's nest soup is the hardened saliva of the swiftlet. Once a rarity and actually a harvested agricultural product, demand for this Chinese delicacy attracts entrepreneurs to Southeast Asia, where the swiftlets create their edible homes. Howard Gan is one of these investors: a recently retired Chinese-Malaysian Canadian immigrant who spent over half his life in Montreal. Gan decides to return to extended family and oversee his investment. The swiftlet's idiosyncratic life cycle—building homes for their offspring, only to be displaced and forced to resettle—captures the imagination of Gan's artist daughter, who sees the parallels to her father's own life. Addressing themes of home and heritage, Cavebirds is a beautifully crafted father-daughter storyline that explores the changing values between generations and our desire to know where we come from.

Description: They come from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Eritrea. Accompanied by their parents, they have escaped from fight and persecution. Forced out onto the roads, despite their tender years, these exiled kids have had to face many perils as they test to reach Europe. Others have never succeeded in completing this trek; consumed by the Mediterranean Sea, freezing mountains or slave trade networks. But once in Europe, in Belgium, how do you begin out again, create a zone for yourself in an environment that is entirely various from your own city or village, in the middle of the countryside in a Red Cross welcome centre? Said from the children’s perspective, the movie puts their voices centre scene as they begin the long wait to be recognised as a refugee. The only thing left from their homes are images, emotions, nightmares and fears. And all of them share one thing: they no longer like forests, mountains, and the sea.

Description: Thanks to an embarrassing stand-up routine promoting Christian clever design, Ray Comfort was dubbed "Banana Man" by Professor Richard Dawkins and mocked by an whole generation of atheists. But Ray's gotten used to it. In fact, he’s been using his banana-based infamy as a method to evangelize even more. Last year, he wrote a book, hoping that would deliever some much required context to his banana bit — it didn’t — and actually he’s made this film documenting the same thing. The trouble with the whole routine, though, is that taking an hour to explain a horrible analogy doesn’t work when your starting mission is a horrible analogy.
