For many filmmakers, animation providesa chance to fulfil the desire to become anactor without having to stand up personallyin front of a live audience.
These shorts use performance to narrate stories concerned with the human condition, from navigating interpersonal skills to building a sense of community. This international selection brings the uncontrollable grief of a little girl, the events of one day of the week, school crushes, road rage, family relationships, dysfunctional neighbours and the murderous impulse.
