Each year our programming team works hard to find the best short films from around the world. While watching through the multiple hundred short films the team is tasked with deciphering an overall theme that is prevalent for the year. The team takes this theme and develops a block of short films that best represents the year. This year the programming team was amazed at the quality of animated films.
This year’s block contains some of the most beautiful, compelling, sad, and fun short films from around the world.
