Everyone loves an underdog story. Perhaps it’s because we identify with the heroes, or maybe it’s just because the little guy so rarely wins in the real world of corporate giants. This collection of shorts is sure to put a smile on your face as it fills that most innate of human emotions, compassion. Although, because we like to be inclusive – we have to give those faceless, heartless suits something to cheer too – sometimes Goliath wins. Sorry, that’s life, get used to it!

Dir. Eugen Merher
12-year-old Leon would do anything to belong to a group of youngsters from his school. But while seeking their attention, he gets into a conflict with the ruthless leader Ecke. How far will he go to be accepted as a full member?

One Under
Dir. Ruth Pickett
David is stuck – doing a job he hates, living in a tiny Derbyshire backwater, bullied by his boss and his eccentric Jamaican grandmother, and being cheated on by his girlfriend. When he finally tries to stand up for himself and become a hero – things don’t quite go to plan.

Kitty’s Fortune
Dir. Adam Baroukh
‘Kitty’s Fortune’ is based on the true story of living Holocaust survivor Kitty Hart-Moxon’s first night in Auschwitz, when she encountered a palm-reading Gypsy who told her she would be one of the few to survive.

I Am Dyslexic
Dir. Mads Johan Øgaard
This animated short film expresses what it feels like to have a learning difference in our current school system.

Some Will Forget
Dir. Ruth Grimberg
Ex-miner Les Moore cannot let go of the past. Thirty years ago in Britain the Miners’ Strike divided the nation before ending in bitter defeat. Now the coal-mine in his South Yorkshire village, one of the last in the UK, is finally facing closure.
