Giannalberto Bendazzi,  Pedro Rivero, and Janno Põldma will be this year's jury in the Tallinn festival.

animated-dreams-logo The 18th Animated Dreams festival (Tallinn, Estonia) received over 500 submissions, from which 66 were chosen for the festival's three competition programmes.

In the Grand Competition there are a total of 28 animated films from 21 different countries. The student competition has 24 student films and the newest competition programme SHUT UP! consists of 20 films without dialogue or narration by students and professionals alike.

 The festival's new artistic director Olga Pärn describes the selection as strong films with brilliant direction and very personal artistic statements.

Strong indeed. The festival pair of Igor Kovalyov (Before Love) and Phil Mulloy (Endgame) is also present at Animated Dreames (Mulloy in two categories).

Špela Čadež comes back with her new road movie/David Lynchian short, Nighthawk (watch the trailer). 

Ivan Bogdanov and Vessela Dancheva (Anna Blume) present a highly ritualistic short, Travelling Country
