AUSTRIAN PUBLIC CHOICE

SPRICHWÖRTLICHES GLÜCK
Dave Lojek, Steffi Sixdorf (AT 2016, 5 min)

Idiome garnieren unsere Sprache, sind aber mitunter schwer zu übersetzen. Diese Komödie hilft beim Bebildern und erzählt von zwei Nachbarn, die Gefühle entwickeln. Nachdem der Schaumschläger Hanspeter ein Auge nach der verwirrten Annemarie wirft, zeigt sie ihm zunächst den Vogel. Also muss er über seinen Schatten springen und einen Fuß in ihre Tür kriegen. Ein Spaß für alle Sprichwörterfans, die gerne auf den Putz hauen, Löcher in die Luft starren oder schnell auf den Punkt kommen wollen.

RIFT
Christoph Brüller (AT)

RIFT is an animated short about a mountaineer and his inner struggles. His journey ultimately comes to a halt as he faces a crevice in the mountainscape...
