SHORT, YET DAY: adult animation programme WTF
In celebration of the International Short Film Day on December 21st, Lithuanian short film agency LITHUANIAN SHORTS together with Annecy International Animated Film Festival (France) presents exclusive program for adults WTF featuring 17 animated short films from all over the world. If you love weird, crazy, dark and kinky films, this programme is for you!
Form and content, these are the main ingredients of the short films in the WTF2019 programme. Just add a pinch of humour, a spurt of political criticism, a drop of dreamy tales and a snippet of gratuitous malice for a blend that’ll leave you dumbstruck. Unless perhaps you slipped into the wrong room, in which case do not call 911 because no one can help you. No matter if the films are animated or not, 2D or 3D, when you leave the WTF2019 session, you’ll feel a changed person… or else not. Still a few doubts remaining? To get to the bottom of the matter, figure it out for yourself by attending this adult-oriented programme, offbeat in form and content, just like it says at the start of this blurb. For all complaints, please contact your general practitioner.
Partners: Lithuanian Council for Culture, Annecy International Animation Film Festival, Audiovisual Works Copyright Association AVAKA.
