A woman having an affair arrives home to find her wife making a snuff film, her leather-laden subject tied up in the middle of their living room.

Red Lake – Shaun Dunne
This atmospheric short from director Shaun Dunne focuses on two estranged sisters returning to Red Lake, a place from their youth, to mourn their late father. As the film progresses however younger sister Jess is struck by an inescapable feeling of dread; something is wrong and there may be more secrets to Red Lake than she realises.
Lure – Dominic Curran
An alcoholic retiree goes fishing and is plagued by memories of his youth, reflections of a lifelong relationship with drinking.
