James, Northern Ireland (Director: Connor Clements) — A young man grapples with the impulses and thoughts about being gay.

Magnetic Movie, UK (Directors: Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt) — Natural magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic ever-changing geometries, as scientists from NASA’s space sciences laboratory excitedly describe their discoveries.

This Way Up, UK (Directors: Adam Foulkes, Alan Smith; Screenwriters: Foulkes, Smith, Christopher O’Reilly) — Laying the dead to rest has never been so much trouble.
