Junior: Contemporary Animation for Children

The collection of contemporary animated films for children presents the best of the genre in past several years in an attempt to demonstrate that a short animated film for children may not necessarily be popular-oriented, strictly educational or uselessly garrulous. There are a lot of filmmakers in the world who regularly manage to avoid these notorious shortcomings in their films. Our selection includes pictures that feature some well-thought-out, far-from-obvious humour, which is guaranteed to entertain not only infant viewers but also their adult chaperones. At the same time, it may help festival-goers gain a solid overview of established stars of short animated film as well as young talents of the genre (e.g. Alexandra Hetmerová, Péter Vácz).
