WHEN THE DOGS ARE GONE: THE RACE "SUKKANIUNNEQ"
Director: Frederik Wolff
Producer: Anders Drud Jordan
On the western coast of Greenland, a young boy dreams of winning the national championship of dog sledding, an ancient form of transportation which has turned into a highly competitive sport. For thousands of years, the genetically unique sled dog has shaped the life of the Inuit people. But all that may be about to change.

LENS OF TIME: SECRETS OF SCHOOLING
Director: Amy Miller, Josh Rosen
Producer: Stephanie Stone, Steven Bedard, Spine Films
Collective behavior is embodied in swarms of insects, flocks of birds, herds of antelope, and schools of fish. Such coordinated movement requires the rapid transfer of information among individuals, but understanding exactly how this information spreads through the group has long eluded scientists. Now, Iain Couzin and his colleagues at the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology at the University of Konstanz, Germany are using new observation techniques and technologies to reveal the mysterious mechanics of collective behavior.

L’ORCHESTRE D’HIBERNATION ANIMAUX (HOW ANIMALS HIBERNATE)
Director: Tom McNamara
Producers: Joe Brown and Amy Schellenbaum, Popular Science
Ever wonder what would happen if hibernating animals of different species formed an orchestra and performed a symphony about their winter’s sleep? In this subtly scientific version of “Peter and the Wolf”—starring a frog, a turtle, a bird, a mosquito, a bear, and a fish—viewers discover how each of these curious creatures use the magic of hibernation to survive the cold.
