If you want to know what has been happening in the animation world over the past few months, this programme is a good place to start.
Award winning films (including Roughhouse, which recently won the BAFTA for Best British Short Animation, and Bloeistraat 11, winner of the Cristal in Annecy) stand alongside festival hits.
With their powerful narratives, these sensitive films talk about the relationships that shape us and that we sometimes need to let go of in order to grow up.
Family issues, fond childhood memories and bitter betrayals of friendship are on the menu, served by the crème de la crème of international animators.
