Bikes, Beasts and Washing Machines is a showcase of different animation techniques through which filmmakers from Croatia, the Czech Republic, Romania, Slovenia and Slovakia present us with a unique worldview. From stop-motion to 3D animation, the selection includes 10 short films that tell different and interesting stories, some of them with a humorous touch, others discussing hot topics that we are all confronting in our daily lives. This programme is an invitation to sit back, relax and enjoy quality filmmaking, but also to reflect and discuss the films further, be it with cinephile friends or with professionals in the field. The selection was curated by Mihai Mitrică as part of the CEE Animation Festivals Network’s joint activities. Presented with the support of Anifilm festival - Liberec.
