What if aliens intervened right after World War 2? What would the world look like today? This crowd-sourcing feature film follows our eventual rebellion in the London Underground. Plus a sweet scifi love short and a werewolf western, that hates babies.
This little film, according to their website, is "an independent, no-budget, feature-length, live action movie with vivid, intense, and marrow-vibrating visual effects and animations created with the open source software Blender (and other traditional software) and 250 (or so) worldwide volunteers." Which means they are literally making this film by donation. The feature takes place in an alternate present, after aliens landed on Earth in the 40s.
After WWII, the Nalardians, an alien race, have brought their technology to Earth. Peace reigns under the world government they helped create, the Joint Command. Nebraska Higgins plunges into a world of intrigue and struggle when Joint Command kills his father, a hero known by his exosuit, Arizona.
Seeing a prime opportunity, the London Underground, a rugged band of revolutionaries, recruits Nebraska to join the resistance against the Joint Command. Can Nebraska deal with the loss of his father as interplanetary calamities threaten to destroy the world around him? Earth's fate depends on the potential in a young man's heart.
We're not 100% certain what this werewolf western was about, until this shot from the trailer above. Clearly this baby has the little ghost town by the neck or why else would this cowboy be pointing his pistol at it? I'm open for other interpretations, like that the fancy city lady up and left her husband for the dirty cowboy after becoming a werewolf maiden, but we're still sprung on the evil baby.
This Czech film is amazing, astounding and awe-inspiring. The toy wold the creator invented is unlike anything we've seen in a long, long time. Please watch the trailers below for, Kucky Returns.

It's really just a dream a little boy or kuky actually went to the biggest adventure of his plush life
Kuky Returns is an adventure and poetic, a family story in which the main role, however, take the heroes of children's fantasy world. "I've wanted to make a film in which I could give small details - insect light in leaves, feathers flying, and even I wonder what is happening on the scene when the actors leave. Variously we smuggled into their films, but it's hard. "Says director Jan Sverak impulses to the recording film, whose main, but not the only heroes are the puppets. "I thought then change the scale and place the story directly into the microcosm, his protagonists make small enough that the roots of the tree decorations, light in the atmosphere made raspberry leaves, fuzz was all the props and extras natural insects," says Jan Sverak, who is also the author scenarios and as with most of his recent films also the producer.

The Insomniac City Cycles
When two people wake up on different sides of the world after having the same dream about each other, what can that mean? Are they doomed to repeat what they've seen, are we all just being FlashForwarded, who knows, but The Insomniac City Cycles is freaking us out. Is that woman having sex with a phone?
A man wakes up with a bullet wound in an abandoned parking garage in Tel Aviv, having lost his memory and a gun. As the man struggles to recall his recent past, a woman wakes up in a Shanghai hotel from a similar dream.
A fragmented conversation with a stranger on the phone sets off a strange exploration between the two. Tel Aviv and Shanghai in a movie within a movie and a dream within a dream.
Through a fragmented non linear stream of events that encompass day and night, Tel Aviv and Shanghai are spliced through a vague notion of reality, chaotic observations, drifting between physical and mental spheres,between the known reality and a hallucinatory one. The film blends urban spaces and modes of perception, oscillating between film noir and science fiction, documentary and fiction.Through a probe of memory, an exploration of the city spaces takes place, processing the city as experienced through an obscure labyrinth of memory fighting to distinguish real from unreal.
A man looking to the sky to find out if we're not alone, finds out he isn't, metaphorically. It's a sweet little short by Mark Buchanan. Which also makes us think there might be money in this home UFO searching kits.
A lonely man's search for the existence of life outside our universe takes a remarkable turn when he connects with a recently bereaved family.
