Six Best of Shorts programmes with the best international short films, Real Life Stories, a programme of animated documentaries, the best music videos in Watch & Dance and, last but not least, three This is Belgium programmes... together they form the official short film selection for adults of Anima 2021.

The short films in the international selection are the quintessence of the Festival and the source of all possibilities and fantasies. Filmmakers and animators from all over the world will delight, surprise, question, move and amaze us with their inspiration and impressive technical prowess.
