Animated shorts by European students competing for the Young Talent Award, presented jointly by the University of Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts and Design and University of Nova Gorica School of Arts.

Škodljivci / Nuisibles / Pests

Directed by: Juliette Laboria
Short synopsis:

In the heat of summer, children and wasps gather around the same meal, but sharing is not on the daily menu.

Reduction

Directed by: Réka Anna Szakály
Short synopsis:

Two girls live together along the post-apocalyptic coast, both sharing the same goal of reaching the other side in hopes of a better life. However, when a mysterious character enters the life of one, a chain of irreversible events begins.

Coffin

Directed by: Cai Yuanqing, Nathan Crabot, Houzhi Huang, Mikolaj Janiw, Mandimby Lebon, Théo Tran Ngoc
Short synopsis:

A man comes home and wants to go to bed. A bunch of noisy roommates. A crowded city in southern China.

Blessing in Disguise

Directed by: Kevin Koch, Emma Holzapfel
Short synopsis:

Kevin Hines, suffering from auditory hallucinations, attempts to take his own life by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. In the millisecond after the jump, he immediately regrets his decision. Miraculously, however, he survives the jump and is saved, as he later says himself, by a gift from God.

Film o pudingu / A Film About a Pudding

Directed by: Roel van Beek
Short synopsis:

After Ronin neglects to clear up her dropped groceries, they start to mix and bubble, transforming into a small pudding. Whilst this initially seems odd, for Ronin, it is easily ignorable. Over the next few days, the pudding grows bigger and bigger.

Avant

Directed by: Marcell Mostoha
Short synopsis:

The film works with the interaction of space, being in it, and the associated energies.

Sunshower

Directed by: Attila Fekete, Ádám Wator
Short synopsis:

Residents of a drought-stricken dystopian town invoke a mannequin for help.

Razpad / Ontbinding / Dissolution

Directed by: Dries Bogaert
Short synopsis:

A society of pink creatures live on top of a tower in peace under one unwritten rule, ‘Wait for your turn in line to the top’. But this all suddenly gets undermined when a citizen fails to comply with this way of living.

Busline35a

Directed by: Elena Felici
Short synopsis:

One city bus, three passengers and a back seat scenario they fail to address.

Pesem kitov / The Song of the Whales

Directed by: Žoel Kastelic
Short synopsis:

The synchronized movements of the whale and the diver plunging into the subaquatic world show the human bond with nature, reminding us that we are becoming less and less aware of this connection. We forget the easiness and playfulness that we can observe when the whale jumps out of the water.

Race / Los Patos / The Ducks

Directed by: Ángela Arregui Chavarría
Short synopsis:

Excited Mari Carmen starts her first day of work in the International Sales Department of a company. However, not everything will turn out as expected.
