Best of International Competition 2016


… is a collection of some of the best animated shorts from the International Competition of the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film 2016. The selected films are thoughtful, critical and touching, hilarious, witty and humorous. Every single film reflects the enormous variety of topics, techniques and forms of expression as well as the extraordinary and imaginative creativity that makes the world of animated film so rich and exciting.


BW-Reel – Best of Animation from Baden-Württemberg 2016


What’s going on in Baden-Württemberg, Germany? A queen bee gives an audience, Max Mustermann has a thoughtful, slow Sunday, a rhino asks for a dance, a wrestler doesn’t want to wrestle anymore, and even happiness seems to have a hole in Germany’s south-west area. You can learn all of that and even more in the entertaining animation programme of the BW-Reel.
