Floor Adams’ debut short animation Mind My Mind*, produced by CinéTé, is selected for Shorts: Animated Shorts, curated by Whoopi Goldberg. The film recently won the Audience Award for Best Animated Short Film at Anima Brussels. When trying to navigate the minefield of social interaction, it’s not so easy to go off-script. Especially if you’re obsessed with German dive bombers and just want to date a girl…
The animated documentary VR experience, Another Dream* by Tamara Shogaolu world premieres in Storyscapes international competition. Produced by Ado Ato Pictures, Another Dream brings to life the gripping, true story of an Egyptian lesbian couple. Faced with a post-Revolution backlash against their community, they must choose between love and home.
