(Nguyen Tan Hoang, 1999), Happy Together (Wong Kar-wai, 1997), Hold Me While I’m Naked (George Kuchar, 1966), Home Stories (Matthias Müller, 1990), Inventur - Metzstrasse 11 (Želimir Žilnik, 1975), L Is for the Way You Look (Jean Carlomusto, 1991), Mababangong Bangungot (Perfumed Nightmare, Kidlat Tahimik, 1977), La Mujer der Puerto (Arcady Boytler, 1932), News from Home (Chantal Akerman, 1977), Now!
