Burrow

In Disney and Pixar’s new short film, a young rabbit embarks on a journey to dig the burrow of her dreams, despite not having a clue what she’s doing. Rather than reveal her insecurities to her neighbours, she digs herself deeper and deeper into trouble before finally learning there’s no shame in asking for help.

Genius Loci

On a nighttime walk, a young loner perceives a lively movement — almost like a guide — amid the urban chaos.

Opera

Erick Oh’s 8K animated installation project is a whimsical portrayal of hierarchy, religion, culture, and ideology that invites discussion about human society and behaviour.

If Anything Happens I Love You

Grieving parents struggle with the loss of their daughter after a school shooting, in this elegy on grief.

Yes-People

An eclectic mix of people face their daily battles with routine: work, school, washing the dishes. As the day progresses, their relationships and, ultimately, their capacity to cope is put to the test.

Kapaemahu

Long ago, four extraordinary individuals of dual male and female spirit brought the healing arts from Tahiti to Hawaii. The name of their leader was Kapaemahu. Beloved by the people for their gentle ways and miraculous cures, they imbued four giant boulders with their powers. The stones still stand on what is now Waikiki Beach, but the true story behind them has been hidden — until now.

The Snail and the Whale

A beautiful tale of an unlikely friendship, a tour of the world, and a heroic rescue. Starring Sally Hawkins and Rob Brydon, this animated short film is based on the picture book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.

To Gerard

In Taylor Meacham’s short about the power we have to inspire others, a postal worker who once dreamed of being a magician performs his first show to an audience of one: a young girl with dreams of her own.
