After a three year hiatus, this curated selection of the "best of the best" animated short films by students and professionals around the world returns to theaters across North America this spring. Featuring films from 10 countries, the 2022 edition of the program offers an array of highly imaginative, thought-provoking and moving works that reflect the filmmakers' unique perspectives and their relationship to the world.

This 22nd edition is especially timely and relevant, dealing with both the anxieties and hopes in a world faced with a seemingly endless series of existential crises. Comprised of 10 films—nine recent, along with one restored classic—this year's show is kid-friendly, life-affirming, funny, inspirational, purposeful and memorable. 

Stay for a post-screening virtual Q&A with the filmmakers.
