1. Love is all you need?
Love is All You Need? tells the story of Ashley, a young teen who is raised in the picture perfect all-American family with two moms, two grandpas, two uncles, and a little brother. But Ashley has a problem, she has a crush on a boy at school, which is against everything this world has ever taught her. This undeniable attraction to the opposite sex causes her to be the constant target of verbal and physical abuse until she is driven to a tragic end. This film hopes to shed light onto the highly controversial issue of human and equal rights in the LGBT Community, and also raise awareness to our current world as to the obstacles that this community faces.

3. Contracuerpo / The Body Against.
This short is just great! It's about anorexia. It makes you think, they should show this movie to kids in high school. The girl who plays the lead role does a great job. The music goes nicely with the scenes. The song that the violinist plays is very sad and well performed. This short reflects the cruel reality of anorexia. It mixes the dream of the girl with the real world. You'll think after watching it. The girl obsessed with her weight, she losses weight to be able to fit inside a doll. She finally can fit inside and spends her time besides a window in a fashion shop. She is like a model, her dream becomes a nightmare.
