International Program #3 (2013)
The International Programs are the backbone of the festival line-up. Don't look for themes, there aren't any. There's every style, every technique, every genre. Drawn from a global call for entries, they are a set of headlights illuminating the current state of the international indie and auteur animation scene worldwide.
|I Already Know What I Hear

|Inside My Mind
An up-close encounter with a mind that seems unhinged and running a hundred miles an hour in a hundred different directions.
|A Different Perspective
It's all about perspective - whichever way you look at it. Even if you're being chased by a dog.

Portrayed in a fascinating and unique wall-to-wall digital cardboard texture, this looks like a simple one room renovation of some kind til the axe comes out.
|The Triangle Affair
A crazy-wild ballet of the strangest creatures getting a bit of after-hours cleaning done, drawing lines in the sand and making a break for it on the high wire.
In an act of almost absurd creative bravery, Gella invited friends and strangers to phone in their off the wall ideas for short animations and here's a collection of the best.

One man vs evil, one man vs the train, one man vs the clock - one man vs stupidity.
Animated to snippets of phone conversations with helter skelter serial killer Charles Manson, this reaffirms his 'down-to-the-bone' madness.
United StatesRuntime: 5:47
One of the most acclaimed, awarded and gripping films of the year. Stabbed in the street, a man using his dying moments to summon up memories of a childhood best friend who drifted into the murky world of drugs and crime.
