The festival will open with Brazilian film ‘Boy And The World (O MENINO E O MUNDO) by Alê Abreu on 13 October 2016, which was nominated for an Academy Award® for Best Animated Feature this year. You definitely wouldn’t want to miss ‘Harvie Krumpet’ by Elliot, which won the Academy Award® for Best Animated Short Film in 2004.

The local ‘SG Animated Shorts Showcase’ will screen selected Singapore shorts from new and upcoming talents by Singaporean students.

There will be a total of 5 screenings, 2 talks and 2 panel discussions during the festival.
