Burrow – Madeline Sharafian and Michael Capbarat (USA, 6 min.)

In Disney and Pixar’s new short film BURROW, a young rabbit embarks on a journey to dig the burrow of her dreams, despite not having a clue what she’s doing. Rather than reveal to her neighbors her imperfections, she digs herself deeper and deeper into trouble. After hitting (bed) rock bottom, she learns there is no shame in asking for help.


Genius Loci – Adrien Mérigeau and Amaury Ovise (France, 16 min.)

One night, Reine, a young loner, sees among the urban chaos a moving oneness that seems alive, like some sort of guide.


Opera – Erick Oh (USA, 9 min.)

OPERA is an animation project that can be defined as a contemporary animated edition of the Renaissance fresco mural paintings. Driven by the spirits of Bosch, Michelangelo, Botticelli and more, Erick Oh portrays, in his own signature whimsical and surreal way, the human society and history, filled with beauty and absurdity.


If Anything Happens I Love You – Will McCormack and Michael Govier (USA, 12 min.)

Grieving parents struggle with the loss of their daughter after a school shooting. An elegy on grief.


Yes-People – Gísli Darri Halldórsson and Arnar Gunnarsson (Iceland, 8 min.)

One morning an eclectic mix of people face the everyday battle, such as work, school and dish-washing. As the day progresses, their relationships are tested and ultimately their capacity to cope.
