Iskanje poti / Trovare una via / Finding a Way

Directed by: Gianpaolo Di Costanzo
Short synopsis:

Finding a Way is an animated short about research activity: approaching reality through a systematic and creative method, observing the world we are immersed in to understand and learn about it.

Divje zveri / Divoké bytosti / Wild Beasts

Directed by: Marta Prokopová, Michal Blaško
Short synopsis:

Will the father-son relationship make a trip into the wild more enjoyable? Are the children really cruel or just playing innocent games? What will the teacher do when everything is already synchronized? Three stories set on a mysterious island. The animated film sheds memories of childhood and adolescence delivered as narcotic images and suggestive sounds.

Hierarchy Glitch

Directed by: Vessela Dantcheva
Short synopsis:

In a purely abstract way Hierarchy Glitch deals with a core idea of the Common Good Economy model. Both visual patterns and the ensemble’s voices are tied up in hierarchical behaviour, which restrains the full potential and mobility of each individual element.

Blatni dnevnik / Dnevnik od blata / Mud Chronicles

Directed by: Vuk Palibrk
Short synopsis:

A compilation of short adventures and impressions inspired by the author's everyday life, arranged in the form of a surreal animated diary.
