Knygoje Joanna Quinn ir Les Mills „Meno reikalai“ mes vėl bendraujame su Beryl, darbininkų klasės heroje, kuri ne tik atskleidžia savo maniją piešti, bet ir atskleidžia savo ekscentriškos šeimos priklausomybes, įskaitant marinavimą, sriegiuotus siūlus ir gyvūnų taksidermiją. (Pagrindinių ir daugelio kitų pasaulio animacijos festivalių laureatė).

Animacinio fimo režisierius Andreas Hykade yra vienas iš garsiausių Vokietijos animacijos kūrėjų. Jis pristatydamas savo filmą „ALTÖTTING“ (bendra gamyba Germany, Canada, Portugal) rašo: „Žinai, kai buvau berniukas, įsimylėjau Mergelę Mariją. Tai atsitiko mažame Bavarijos miestelyje vadinamame ALTÖTTING“.

Dmitrijaus Gelerio filmas „10 000 Ugly Inkblots“ laimėjo pirmąją vietą Rusijos Suzdalės festivalyje. Tai bendra gamyba Rusijos ir Kinijos. Filmas pasakoja, kaip du menininkai, kurie kurį laiką nebuvo susitikę, eina vienas kito link.

Režisierės Sandros Desmazieres filmas „Tarsi upė namo “ pasakoja apie dviejų seserų Thao ir Sao Maï, dviejų paauglių merginų, gyvenančių Saigone ir kurias skirs Vietnamo karas, likimus. Vienai - gyvenimas už jos šalies ribų, kitai - karas ir komunizmas. Filmas buvo atrinktas į Anima (Be), Animatou (Suisse), Trickfilm Stuttgart (De) ir kitų festivalių konkursines programas.
