South Korea and the United States, 8 min 44 s, 2020
Direction and production: Erick Oh

Opera is an animation cycle that can be played infinitely. The activities of each section and individual are intrinsically connected so the viewers can eventually enjoy the entire pyramid no matter which character they decide to watch first.


France, 8 min 20 s, 2020, 2D digital animation drawing, without dialogue
Direction: Sophie Racine
Production: Am Stram Gram

A small island off the coasts of Brittany. The weather is stormy, the wind is blowing, and dark clouds are obscuring the sky. The sun highlights the shape of a tree, a house and a passer-by, for a brief instant. Then a thunderstorm breaks out.


United States, 7 min 24 s, 2020, VOS (english)
Direction and production: Mitch Mcglocklin

A life insurance company uses an AI algorithm to determine the risk of a new applicant. The subsequent denial sparks a period of introspection for the individual in question.

Direction: Aria Covamonas
Production: Opuntia Stricta Cinematográfica

Marxist-Leninist revision of Plato’s allegory of the cave, with talking animals that are in a great hurry, and bourgeois monarchs who are very fond of detaching their heads.

Orgiastic Hyper-Plastic

United Kingdom and Denmark, 6 min 51 s, 2020, stop motion, VOS (english)
Direction: Paul Bush
Production: Lana Tankosa Nikolic and Paul Bush

An animated extravaganza of plastic collected from beaches, roadsides, attics and junk shops. This is an elegy to a love affair that has gone sour, a fond farewell to that most beautiful material that has enslaved our planet: plastic.

My Galactic Twin Galaction

Rusia, 6 min 33 s, 2020, 2D and 3D animation and cutouts, VOS (English)
Direction: Shasha Svirsky
Production: Master-Film

One day he receives an email that looks like spam: there is apparently trouble in a neighbouring galaxy that will soon threaten his own. His galactic twin, Galaction, asks him for help in the struggle against evil. Thus begins a boldly colourful adventure in which good and evil, utopia and dystopia, narrative and post-narrative compete to entertain the audience.


Portugal, 7 min 1 s, 2020, 2D digital animation drawing, without dialogue
Direction and production: Luís Soares

Lying on the bed of a small room, a man is in a stalemate, unable to decide. Another man observes, side by side with some dried red flowers. Pushed by disgust and despair, a very brief glimpse of an exit seems to appear: between cycles of analysis and broken sequences, the possibility of mistake.


France, 2 min 19 s, 2020, animation with painting on negative, without dialogue
Direction and production: Bastien Dupriez

Colours and movements bring you to meet Liza.

A vulnerable boy works very hard to escape from a stark reality. He surrounds himself with a world of toys and games but as the truth starts to emerge his refuge might turn out to be a trap.


Spain, 4 min 58 s, 2020, Various techniques without dialogue
Direction: Hauazkena Taldea (coordinator: Bego Vicario)
Production: Lekuk Kultur Elkartea

Portrait of the harshness of our own reality: harassment, violence and destruction. Ehiza proposes a continuation of the short film Homenaje a Tarzán, made by the artist Rafael Balerdi in 1969, which ended with a "to be continued".

Average Happiness

Switzerland, 7 min 3 s, 2020, 2D animation digital drawing, VOS (english)
Direction: Maja Gehrig
Production: Langfilm

During a PowerPoint presentation, statistical diagrams are breaking free from the strait-jacket of their coordinates. A trip into the sensual world of statistics begins. Pie charts are melting, arrow diagrams twisting, bar graphs and stock market curves join in a collective climax.
