KATER/TOMCAT by Händl Klaus
Andreas and Stefan lead a happy and passionate life: Together with their beloved tomcat Moses, they live in a beautiful old house in Vienna's vineyards. They work as a musician and as a scheduler in the same orchestra and they love their large circle of friends. An unexpected and inexplicable outburst of violence suddenly shakes up the relationship and calls everything into question – the blind spot that resides in all of us.

WINWIN by Daniel Hoesl
Three investors, wolves in sheep’s clothes, can’t for the life of them find heart or soul.
In their jets, they circle the globe, preaching love and earning gold.
Smoke and mirrors is their game, ministers, unions and kings enjoy their fame.
Gambling with open cards at the table, where there’s no risk there’s only one aim:
the truth is a lie, 'cause lying is real – when you get pranked, how does it feel?
