Modri medo / Plavi medo / Blue Teddy Bear

Directed by: Marina Andree Škop
Short synopsis:

A boy got a blue teddy bear for his fifth birthday. Although he desperately wanted to open the gift, his mom wouldn't let him because bacteria and dust often live on plush toys. When he grew up and became a dad, he decided to do everything to make his son’s dreams come true.

Tine in Bine, tigrasta komarja: Tango / Tine And Bine, Tiger Mosquitos: Tango

Kit / La baleine / The Whale

Directed by: Leandro Basso, Tom Tirabosco
Short synopsis:

A young man leaves his dying mother in hospital and discovers a whale washed up on a beach. The Whale tells a story of mourning through dreamed memories born out of the fear of an inevitable end.

Meditacija ob mraku / Meditáció alkonyatkor / Meditation at Dusk

Directed by: Judit Erdélyi
Short synopsis:

Life is about actions. Do these actions really fill our life? What else could be even more important for us? Through the eyes and dreams of a cat we can search for answers to these questions.

Paradeigma

Directed by: Andrej Rehak
Short synopsis:

One of the properties of chaos is the appearance of a pattern, regardless of scale. Paradeigma is a sample of the pattern. We witness a grounded figure who, for fear of free fall and the discomfort of the rain, has locked itself into an enchanted square that it can no longer leave. The protagonist's manifestation is a repeating sample of a self-similar pattern.

V kaplji / In una goccia / In a Drop

Directed by: Valeria Weerasinghe
Short synopsis:

Split between two cultures, a young girl falls into an imaginary jungle to escape her daily life. Guided by a drop, she finds herself in front of her roots and realises her heritage will forever be an important part of her identity.

Kje stanujem / Wo ich wohne / Where I Live

Directed by: Susi Jirkuff
Short synopsis:

The animation traces a person’s sudden descent, not only narratively, but also visually, image by image. Right at the start, the protagonist says, “I’ve been living one floor below since yesterday.” But no one around her reacts to this extraordinary situation.

Desertni jazbečar / Deserowy jamnik / Dessert Dachshund

Directed by: Betina Bożek
Short synopsis:

Dessert Dachshund is a surreal story about a dog living inside wedding cakes. The dachshund, fortune telling future young couples, is a symbol of the superficiality of relationships.

Ethel

Directed by: Beatrice Jäggi
Short synopsis:

In the cellar, young Ethel discovers a box with clothes that belonged to her late mother and embarks to unearth memories. The child attempts to understand her mother’s passion. A tale of letting go and growing up.

Kieslerjevo telo / Kiesler’s Körper / Kiesler’s Body

Directed by: Ganaël Dumreicher
Short synopsis:

Architectural theorist Frederick Kiesler designed a place of film projection that focuses on the screen and makes us forget everything around us. With animated spatial models of his cinema, the film implements the idea of a boundless cinematic space in a surreal, visceral and extremely direct way.
