International Program #1
The International Programs are the backbone of the festival line-up. The freshest new shorts taken from the 2,500+ that entered (a record, folks!!). 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. Straight from their desk to your eyeballs.
