Anna is Ill
Dir: Astrid Pfefferkorn Øverli
Anna gets cancer. It starts with fun and laughter in the children’s bedroom, but that quickly changes when she realizes she is in the hospital.
Dir: Julia Torjak
A young woman with writer’s block decides to go hunting to clear her mind. Later in the woods a deer turns up and she forgets everything except the hunting. This digital drawn short film is about the block that can happen in a creative process when you try too hard to reach your goal.

A film that explores a polluted and meaningless world together with two careless characters. The film also promises a punchline…
Dir: Satoe Yoshinari
Why does heartbreak hurt so much?
Is it my heart that’s broken?
This is my interpretation of a heartbreak.
The Animals on the Farm
Dir: Anja Strovand
In this informational film, with a mix of animation and live action, we get to know farm animals and what their names are in sign language. The short film is without sound effects and music, only spoken words so it will be easier for people with hearing disability to understand the names of the animals.
I am Smoking Alone
Dir: Karoline Tveten
”You are smoking to much” said the big brother to his little brother. The thought stuck to his mind while he walked through the woods.
“Yes, maybe I do?” the little brother said to himself on his way home.
The Unlucky Elephant
Dir: Anders Hesbøl
An elephant has to go shopping and she is about to experience several unfortunate events. Is it coincidental, or does she smell a rat?
The event is a collaboration between Fredrikstad Animation Festival, Volda University College and Kulturhuset i Oslo.
