With 30 films from 20 different countries selected from hundreds of entries, we present the very best in contemporary short animated films. The last of our three unmissable programmes includes films picked from the official selections of the Locarno, Rotterdam and Berlin film festivals. Luca Tóth explores unrequited love in Mr Mare, Max Hattler turns Hong Kong high-rises into film strips for Serial Parallels and we bring you the hypnotic and melancholic beauty of machines whirring away by themselves in a deserted city, in Geoffroy de Crécy’s Empty Places.
