Director & Script: Michel Ocelot

Animation: Yves-Marie Beaufrand, Joris Chapelin, Emmanuel Chapon, Julien Duroure, Benoit Guillou, Florian Sauzet

Music: Gabriel Yared

Producer: Philip Boeffard

In the early 1900s, Belle Époque Dilili, a small-winged girl in Paris, works with her young contractor friend in a park where people from different countries were exhibited just like the zoo. In Paris, which is increasingly corrupt, women, especially young girls, are abducted by a cult, because the chiefs of this cult claim that it is caused by women.

Dilili, who will also be kidnapped but she also meets, with the help of her friend, many entellectuals like Sarah Berrnart, Louise Michel, Marie Curie, Toulouse-Lautrec, Proust, Rodin and discovers the male chiefs who lead the evils underground. Two friends struggle with enthusiasm for light and coexistence on earth.

Paris in this film, which has been redrawn over real photographs, seems like a re-written poetry.

Producer: Jorge Neves

In the 40’s, after the Spanish Civil War, many republicans defeated by the nationalist forces of Franco found refuge on the bordering mountains in the north of Portugal. Some saw them as brigands, others gave them shelter and helped them on the sly to police forces of Salazar.

Director: Abi Feijo

Animation: Graça Gomes, Abi Feijó, Zé Carlos Pinto, Regina Pessoa

Sound Design & Music: Normand Roger

Voice: Elina Lowensohn, Manuela Azevedo

Producer: Jacques-Rémy Girerd, Patrick Eveno, Abi Feijo, Marcel Jean

A little girl finds acceptance in embracing her own difference. This lyrical animated film has the timeless charm of an old fable – one whose subject is difference and self-affirmation. Through images evoking the rich texture of a woodblock print, the filmmaker has created a world of contrasts complemented by a lively soundtrack with a rhythmic beat.

He lives in the shadows. The one who inspires fear. The young vampire Kali does exist, and suffers from not being able to live in the light. One day, while once again watching the other young boys play beside the train tracks, he breaks from his isolation and discovers that because of who—and what—he is, he can make a difference in others’ lives. 

UNCLE THOMAS – ACCOUNTING FOR THE DAYS

Animation: Regina Pessoa, André Marques, Sylvie Trouvé, Dale Hayward, Marc Robinet

Soukaïna Najjarane, Nils Delot

Voice: Regina Pessoa, Abi Feijo

There is a world where the Bears live above ground in their cities and the rodents live below in their underground ones in mutual fear and hate. However, Celestine, an apprentice mouse dentist, finds at least momentary common cause with Ernest, a poor street Bear musician, that gets them rejected from both their respective worlds. In spite of this misfortune, the exiles find a growing friendship between themselves as their respective talents flower because of it. Despite this, their quietly profound challenge to the founding prejudices of their worlds cannot be ignored as the authorities track them down.
