Anilogue short film competition programme presents the best of European short animated films from the past 2 years. Even though each one of them would deserve the Best of Anilogue award, there unfortunately is only one statuette to be handed over, so the international festival jury is kindly asked to pick a single film that they all liked the best. Each jury member will also highlight their own special favourite by a Jury Special Award. Gesamt: ca. 70`
