A kurátor Orosz Anna Ida:

While they cost a lot of time and effort to makethe most exciting pieces of animation are actually the short films. European animation traditionally has been field of experimentation with graphic stylesthe mixing of media formats and addressing a wide variety of themes and subject matters.

Animated Spirits, presented by the European Union National Institutes for Culture, offers a survey of recent highlight of the genre from all over Europe.

One way to look at animation is to conceptualize it as doing "sport with the techniques and visuals". Accordingly, the selection includes both “hardcore”, handmade films (On the Other Side of the Woods) and also innovative uses of 3D CGI (Chaud Lapin), clever graphical wizardry (Bathsand the witty use of mixed media (Sunny Afternoon).

At the same time, animation is also an exceptional tool in the hands of artists to tell their stories, to delight and captivate the audience. Being able to display a whole array of moods and genres, comic or tragic, absurd or dramatic, these recent award-winning European animations both can call attention to current global issues and engage the viewer with timeless, universal questions of human existence. Among these subject matters areenvironmental degradation (Symphony No. 42), the zones of in distinction inhabited by transnational migrants (Natasha), the everyday struggles of being a single mom (Mythopolis), coming-of-age (Sunstroke, Age of Curious, Nina), loneliness (Leftover) and the transitory nature of human life (Baths). Yet thanks to the exceptionally broad grammar and lexicon of animation, these global issues and universal subject matters can take highly individual and surprising, yet universally intelligible forms, which anyone can easily relate to.

The selection “Get a Life!” presents various people from an adventurous young child (Nina), through a teenage dreamer (Sunstroke) and a self-obsessed man (Teeth), to two competitive elderly ladies (Baths) and mythological creatures (Mythopolis) who encounter a critical juncture in life and try to cope with it.

The selection “Hit the Road!” focuses on the subject matters of (not) being and (not) feeling at home, featuring again a great range of characters such as a bunch of immigrant animals from Russia in the Brussels Zoo (Natasha), an introvert boy daydreaming at school (Absent Minded), a man who has to face his inner fears (Bears on the Road), a young guy from Berlin suffering from insomnia (Roadtrip), and many more.
