Shorts New Talents Competition: Animation
The best thing with the New Talents programme is that you never know what to expect. These emerging artists have their own fresh view on filmmaking. The directors literally animate and visualize everyday life with the ups and downs in an imaginary and creative way. The programme is a wild, yet coherent mixture of different genres and techniques, from very personal and intimate documentaries to an experimental approach and purely fictional stories.
It's hard to imagine a better art form than animation to express the challenges of living in a tiny cubicle with roommates or the surreal life in the suburbs. We all know the hot summer day when it's the perfect weather to eat outside, but the wasps want to have their own share of the treats. Families and relationships play a big part in these animations, whether the story is about a desperate romance or set in an post-apocalyptic world. And who knew dropping a bag full of groceries on the street could have such serious consequences?
