The Can 
Young guy walking down the street, drinking soda. He throws the empty can in the box and misses. After that, the bank begins to pursue him. Alexey Protsenko | 2016 | 3 mins. | Russian Federation

FIFO 
First in first out (FIFO) is a shelving technique used in supermarkets. Stephan must place the freshest products behind the oldest ones. Products nearing their sell-by date must be destroyed. When going to the bins in the basement, Stephan will have to face those who could still benefit from them, but who are excluded by the system. He will also have to confront who he was before getting a job. Sacha Ferbus | 2017 | 12 min. | Belgium

Fish 
An old couple are living in an apartment, the man is sleeping and the woman is doing housework. The lady wants to change the fish tank’s water but it slips out of her hand and falls on the ground. They've ran out of water and there’s no water for the fish. But with the help of the man they find water for it. Saman Hosseinpuor | 2016 | 4 mins. | Islamic Republic of Iran

Forgotten but not Gone: The Pacific Fisher
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, populations of the fisher (Pekania pennanti)—a forest-dwelling member of the weasel and otter family—were in steep decline across much of its native range of northern North America. Both fur trapping and habitat loss from logging and urbanization took a heavy toll. However, once trapping bans and timber harvest restrictions were put in place, the species rebounded in many regions. Unfortunately, that trend hasn’t carried over to the West Coast of the U.S., where an isolated population of fishers, known as the Pacific fisher, continues to struggle. Scientists estimate that only 4,000 Pacific fishers remain, with just 300 left in California’s Sierra Nevada Range. These individuals now face a new and rising threat: illegal marijuana grow sites that are cropping up on public lands. Growers use poisons to protect their plants from rodents, and these chemicals are indiscriminate killers. Morgan Heim, Day's Edge Productions, BioGraphic | 2017 | 8 min. | USA

L'estoc 
"Problems can also be opportunities" Jordi Mayals. We discovered L'estoc on a back street of Barcelona and were so impressed with the philosophy and people behind the project that we decided to spend a few days learning about the work so we could share the story of L'estoc with everybody else. Bessie Byrne | 2017 | 9 min. | Australia, Spain

Sheltered in Oak
An Iranian squirrel's life in oak trees of the Ilam Province's oak forest, with many dangers posed by fellow forest inhabitants and humans. Majid Mohammaddoust | 2017 | 55 min. | Islamic Republic of Iran 

Turtle on a Fence Post
Former Vice President and climate advocate Al Gore takes us behind the scenes of the climate change denial movement and points to signs that we’re moving towards a clean energy economy. Gabriel Diamond | 2017 | 4 min. | USA

Time 
One tree makes millions of matches, but when the time comes, only one match would be enough to burn millions of trees. Time is more powerfull than you. Mahdi Mousavi Azad | 2017 | 2 min. | Islamic Republic of Iran

Vanishing Coral
"Vanishing Coral" reveals the devastating effects of warming oceans and bleaching events within the “coral triangle” of southeast Asia, and powerfully illustrates what some dedicated scientists and environmental activists are doing to save these unique coral populations. 

"Vanishing Coral" comes at a pivotal moment, when coral reef populations are declining world-wide. Mass coral bleaching events due to elevated ocean temperatures occurred in 1998, 2002 and 2006, and coral bleaching is now expected to become an annual occurrence. The environmental costs are staggering: in 2016, one-third of the Great Barrier Reef along the eastern coast of Australia was decimated by a warm spell attributed to climate change.
Coral reefs in the Florida Keys have declined by 80% over the past three decades. Scientists warn that all Caribbean coral could disappear in the next 20 years. Considered “the canary in the coal mine” of global warming, coral reefs are the most sensitive and diverse of all marine ecosystems. The film follows the work of marine biologist and coral expert Dr. Phil Dustan, who presents powerful insights and direct, visual evidence of the year-by-year dramatic decline in the coral triangle of southeast Asia, changes which are directly tied to the burning of fossil fuels, pollution and other human behaviors. 
Photographed aboard the 100 year-old sailing vessel “Mir”, a floating headquarters for a young, international group of environmental activists, "Vanishing Coral" presents the insights and research of scientists and naturalists as they work with local Indonesian communities to protect the coral reefs."Vanishing Coral" offers an ecological alarm bell to the world, with specific suggestions on how viewers themselves can get involved and take action.  Stephen Olsson | 2017 | 26 min. | USA
