Highlights include Per Tutta La Vita and I’m OK, virtuoso examples of just how stunning hand-drawn animation can look; the Jacques Tati turned-up-to-11 Caterpillarplasty; Egg, one of the most talked about and awarded films on the circuit at the moment; and two outstanding – and completely different – Kiwi films, Winter’s Blight and Trumpet-Trompette.

If you’re looking to sample the international animation ecosystem in all its multi-coloured, variously shaped glories, there’s no better place to begin.
