The Last Day of Autumn

Marjolaine Perreten | Switzerland, Belgium, France | 2019 | 8 min

The biggest event of the season is here - the big race of forest animals towards winter hibernation. But how does a snake take part in a bicycle race? Or a small hedgehog? Self-taught animator with experiences from many study stays Marjolaine Perreten tells a charming story about an interdependent forest community intended for the youngest audiences.

Mr. Mare

Luca Tóth | Hungary, France | 2019 | 20 min

The hero of the latest film by an award-winning Hungarian filmmaker is an attractive young man with a strange tumour on his body concealing a miniature person. While the person sets out to explore a claustrophobic apartment after he is freed, we draw nearer to understanding the hero’s love life and the theme of unrequited love.

Selfies

Claudius Gentinetta | Switzerland | 2018 | 4 min

This excellently animated tragicomic film with a brilliant plot deals with the human addiction to mobile devices and social media. Its author developed a single idea into a four-minute-long dynamic sequence of scenes and created a dismally truthful testimony about the loss of human identity which has moved to the displays of our smartphones.

Somewhere

Paul Muresan | Romania, Czech Republic | 2018 | 9 min

Death is only the beginning. But even with a reliable guide, the journey through Purgatory seems very difficult. Houses walking on spider legs, a dark forest and insidious fledglings are only a fraction of what the dead hero of this dark film can expect when trying to find himself and not get stuck in Purgatory for eternity.

Kids

Michael Frei | Switzerland | 2019 | 9 min | EN

Frei’s artistically minimalistic student film Plug and Play won its category at the 2014 Anifilm. In his latest film Kids, the director sticks to his trademark style. By means of simple stylisation, absence of detail and meticulous work with repetition, he explores the dynamics of a group of his anonymous characters representing not only kids.
