Shorts Kids Animation Competition

The animated short films for children this year are an adventure all by itself. We’ll sail on the sea and jump down a steep water slide. Such simple pleasures of summer might eventually reveal important lessons within themselves. We’ll inhabit the air and learn how to fly weightless. We’ll learn that an animated tour of a zoo might be something completely different from what we experienced. Let’s gather up some courage and enter the woods together to examine some of nature’s wonders up close. This time let the children educate the grownups for a change and we might learn from them how to embrace their fearless curiosity. Remember – if you get lost during our adventurous exploration, stay where you are at all costs!

The films are dubbed in Estonian and are suitable from ages 10 and up.

Renaud is 85 years old and lives in Paris with his trusty wheelchair-caregiver. He is a loner, creature of habit, peacefully blocked for years on the top floor of a Montmartre building. But what if a new woman, moving into the apartment across the street, suddenly messes up his routine? What if both start feeling an uncontrollable desire to no longer live in solitude?
