Director: Daniel Malakai Cabrera

Sinossi

After saving the day at L.A. LIVE, our two favorite bellmen rode off in search of a new adventure. And they found it at the JW Marriott® Marquis® Hotel Dubai.

Home to the deserts, camels, and the world’s tallest hotel, the luxury of Dubai created the perfect place for Christian and Gage to continue on the Bellmen Way. We catch up with them on a day that starts like any other but quickly finds the pair in a marathon chase through the sand dunes pursuing a USB drive with a very important presentation. From speedy treks through the desert, snowboarding adventures down snow-covered hills and a not-so-leisurely sail past a skyline of skyscrapers, they’ll stop at nothing to save the day. But will they make it back in time?

Special mentions:

– Menzione per il montaggio a Claine Sinclair per “Business Unusual”
– Menzione per la regia a Alberto Rocco e Octavio Marques per “The Host H653”

Director: Alice Angeletti

Sinossi

There he is, talking, speaking about himself and only about himself.

He invites you into his flat, onto his sun-lit terrace, without being shy.

He’s not reserved, yet something is strange. Something doesn’t fit.

“I’m trying to live every day in a way that no connections between

the preceding or the following day can be made”, he says. You don’t know

if you should believe him.The turquoise Mediterranean Sea is hiding behind the green,

oh so mediterranean window shutters.

This sentence is important, but maybe it isn’t true. Maybe nothing he says is true.

Then again, maybe everything is. The man, talking.

He says that he misses his mother, and maybe you believe him.
