Full of espionage and mystery 'Withering Tree' features some beautiful cinematography and even has some animation. The tense sequences will leave you on the edge of your seat, so give it a watch!

We don't always get animated ATVAs but when we do they always deliver! Calder's film is no exception, featuring some great animation and design, it still stands the test of time even after a decade!

Feeling a little forgetful? Don't worry so are all the characters in this film. Filled with betrayal and trickery, Mower's film will keep you guessing right to the end

Two men, one bench and an Earth shattering twist.

Misfortunate Fools
Dir. Adam Sinclair

What could possibly go wrong in a film called 'Misfortunate Fools' ? You'll just have to watch and see.

 Ties That Bind

'Ties That Bind' is such a mysterious film that we don't even know who directed it. But that doesn't stop it from being a vibrant and thoughtful film that took this years ATVAs by force!

The Only Word

Inside of you are two wolves; one is organised whilst the other is a slob. Modenova's film puts these lifestyles to the test in this striking student film.

Rumbles returns to the ATVAs with 'DEADline' and yes its as terrifying as it sounds. 

Dead Weight
