For much of its history, the Italian animation scene has been one that has been significantly defined by a group of independent artists who have combined their personal styles with the unique properties of animation to develop beautifully hewed, highly imaginative films that explore themes as esoteric as the most cryptic nature of our inner lives to those as vivid as the residue of war.

In common, and dare we say it, perhaps not unsurprisingly, the common threads that tend to run through these otherwise diverse range of practices is a passion of beautiful design and an obsession with the craft of image making.

This program is an exemplar showcase of some of the finest works by a roster of established and rising 21st century Italian master animators. Drawn from the last 20 years, these are some of the most beloved, admired and awarded Italian animated short films that have wowed audiences the world over.
