45 Animation Shorts for 3D Wire, Spain

3d-wire-logoA total of 31 international short films and 14 films  from Spain (from a total of more than 700 works received) will screen at the 2016 3D Wire Market in Segovia, Spain (2-9 October 2016).

First works, awarded directors, and works in all animation techniques will compete for  the jury and audience awards that would give them direct access to the pre-selection of the Goya Awards and the Cartoon D'Or, which awards the Best European Short of the festival.

In the national competition, the awarded Three Fited Flies, the debut of Elisa Morais and María Álvarez, the new work by Marc Riba and Anna Solanas, The Kid and the Hedgehog, and the surreptitious Decorado by Alberto Vazquez (presented at the 2016 Annecy festival) will be among the selection.

The international selection has short films from Europe, America, Asia and even Oceania.

Among the 31 titles, the quintessential nature-meets-nurture adventure Love by Reka Bucsi, the Altmanesque parody of human relations Piano by the Estonian Kaspar Jancis, and Waiting for the New Year by Vladimir Leschiov.


Waiting for the New Year, Vladimir Leschiov


Love, Reca Bucsi
