Harvie Krumpet 2003 dir. Adam Elliot (23 mins)

How To Lose Weight in 60 Seconds 2010 dir. Dave Carter (1.30 mins)

Flip 2009 dir. Peter W. Allen (2.27 mins)

Roborovski follows an eponymous thimble sized hamster, who spends his days in Marvin’s Pet Shop, hoping to find a family.  However, when he is constantly overlooked by the people and animals around him, his seething resentment and intense jealousy soon takes hold and the murderous side of little Roborovski is released.” Flickerfest
