With no less than 16 screenings carefully chosen for you to get an overview of the many facets of the genre, from hand-crafted to studio films, and taking in some great classics like My Life as a Zucchini and The Nightmare Before Christmas, this rich and varied programme has been curated by Anima’s founder Philippe Moins.
