Bikes, Beasts, and Washing Machines is a showcase of various animation techniques through which filmmakers from Croatia, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovenia and Slovakia present us with a unique worldview. From stop-motion to 3D animation, the selection includes ten short films that tell different and interesting stories, some with a humorous touch, others discussing hot topics we all confront in our daily lives.
This programme is an invitation to sit back, relax and enjoy quality filmmaking, and also to reflect on and discuss the films with cinephile friends or film professionals.
The selection was curated by Mihai Mitrică as part of the CEE Animation Festivals Network’s joint activities.
Together with four other festivals (Animafest in Zagreb, Croatia; Anifilm in Liberec, Czech Republic; Animest in Bucharest, Romania; and Animateka in Ljubljana, Slovenia), Fest Anča forms the Central and Eastern European Animation Festival Network – CEEAFN. Enjoy two hand-picked selections of short animated films from our partner festival countries; one for kids and one for adult audiences.
