Uncanny Valley would like to thank all the filmmakers who submitted their work for consideration. We will be in contact with individual filmmakers as we hope to screen some of the entries as part of our ongoing programme of screenings at Magpie Cinema events throughout the year.

Thanks again for your submissions and your patience!

    Great selection and a really good watch…my vote went to “Wolken Proeven” by Christophe Davids…I thought it was a beautiful animation, subtle yet powerful and with a very interesting lyrical content…almost Zen like.
