Dune by Gábor Ulrich (HU, 2020, 3’, without dialogue, 16+, short film)
Sounds as witnesses. They blur into memories and half-dreams, it is undecided if they are real or not. Fluctuation between imagination and reality. Rocking pictures in the mind, pulsating dark emotions. A horrible secret in the raging wind of our cells.

Sola by Zoltán Debreczeni (HU, 2020, 8’, without dialogue, 12+, short film)
A woman working in the IT sector has to deal with work-related stress all alone, while her nightmares slowly turn into reality.

Our institute collaborated with Anima in 2019, presenting the awardwinning animated feature Ruben Brandt, Collector (Ruben Brandt, a gyűjtő) by Milorad Krstić. The movie won the BeTV Award for Best Animated Feature of the official selection (acquisition of broadcasting rights).
