The Animation Show of Shows returns for its 21st year to present 10 thought-provoking, poignant, and very funny animated shorts from around the world. This year’s works explore the facets of personal relationships, as well as the diverse challenges we all face. Among the program highlights is the puppet animation Daughter, winner of a 2019 Student Academy Award® International Animation, is a moving exploration of the relationship between father and daughter. The computer animated The Fox and the Bird is a beautifully observed fable chronicling the friendship between the title characters. Hounds is a story by Amit Cohen and Ido Shapira about story of a dog who undergoes a change when a pack of wild hounds gathers near his house. The very funny Rubicon, by Gil Alkabetz, explores the classic riddle about how to ferry a wolf, a sheep, and a cabbage across a river without something getting eaten.
