Mound (Allison Schulnik, 2011)

Crazy, scary, confounding – just some of the adjectives we found best describe this years batch of the weirdest films at LIAF. So get ready for zombies, lion penises, bunny sex, psychedelic pussycats, the most intense plasticine Scott Walker music clip you’re ever likely to see, and even some pretty special ads for stuff you really don’t want – and that’s just for starters.

Baby, I Love You (Faiyaz Jafri, 2012) Sure, it might start out slow and sweet but – trust us – it don’t take long for the bile to rise … and rise … and rise! USA, 2’25

Rotting Hill (James Cunningham, 2011) This is one way to deal with zombie action in the back yard. New Zealand, 4’16

No One Remains Virgin – Under the Lion Crotch (Wong Ping, 2012) Sometimes fighting the stench of development means facing down the lion’s giant penis of wealth that stalks the land. Some images may offend … developers! Hong Kong, 4’42

Happy Train (Tami Takezawa, 2012) Probably best to try and not ride this particular line. Every one of the passengers has had their tickets well and truly punched. USA, 2’27

Powerthirst (Picnicface, 2007) Drink Powerthirst and you WILL vomit up a wedding. Canada, 1’23

Funeral Home Piñatas (Andrew McCully, Jayson Simpson, Jacob Tuck & Arun Gnanaselehar, 2012) Nothing says love like a stick, a blindfold and a stiff full of sweeties. New Zealand, 1’11

Happy Holidays (Cameron Gough & Dirty Puppet, 2012) … or not! Hey, Christmas is crap anyway, right Australia, 0’36

Apples We Have Eaten (Masha Ermak, 2012) Carnal and faecal delights – and their egg-popping consequences – in the bunny version of the Garden Of Eden. Switzerland, 3’11

In Front Of The Mirror (Lydia Guenther, 2013) Two heads are almost always better than one. The spare head can do all the talking, handle distractions – even take the bullet. Germany, 2’25

Thumb Snatchers From the Moon Cocoon (Bradley Schaffer & Ashley Arechiga, 2012) A short tempered Texas Sheriff uses his cowboy logic to recklessly defeat a race of condescending, cocoon dwelling critters. USA, 7’00

Mound (Allison Schulnik, 2011) Like taking Bruce Bickford to the nth degree and back again – one of the most intense examples of plasticine animation we’ve ever seen. Set to a haunting Scott Walker song. USA, 4’23

Barracuda (Sarah Martin, 2011) Surprised by the rain, a man enters a building, only to meet a very strange bunch of individuals in the corridors and staircase. Belgium, 6’40

Like (Lotta Sweetliv, 2012) Be seated. Get comfortable. Try to absorb the deeper truths from the dancing psychedelic pussycat of love. Holland, 1’57

Things Don’t Fit (Tim Divall, 2013) The daily routines of several people are disrupted by unexpected events causing the world around them to unravel. UK, 6’30

Autour Du Lac (Carl Roosens & Noemie Marsily, 2013) The breath of a jogger, an anthill, toast abandoned on a bench, fragments of life that take us on a walk around a lake with words and music. Belgium, 5’00

I Love You So Hard (Ross Butter, 2013) A bizarre and terrifying fantasy seduction featuring a mid-air battle with a rhinoceros. UK, 2’00

Lonely Bones (Rosto, 2012) A one-eyed man escapes from a hotel room and steps into a godforsaken world, where time and space melt together. France, 10’00
